Brings back memories
8 February 2005 | by sfdavideSee all my reviews

I am of the age where I do not remember these players when they were playing but I my father remembered all these guys and it brings back wonderful memories of him talking about these players and going to games as a kid with him. I still get a nice feeling when I go to a game but I think it would have been really special to have gone to a game when these guys played. My father grew up in New York and he used to tell about this Polo Ground, Ebbets Field and Yankee Stadium. He loved the game until the day he passed away but I am sure he had special feelings about those early days. It was very emotional for me me to see guys like Joe DiMaggio, Hank Greenberg, Bob Feller, etc, and to hear from announcers like Red Barber and Mel Allen. A wonderful documentary
