It’s June 3, 1961 and the New York Yankees are playing the Chicago White Sox in Comiskey Ball Park on the south side of Chicago This is my very first Major League baseball game.

In spite of a terrible start from Reynaldo López, the White Sox had every reason to win tonight and sweep the first-place Boston Red Sox. But after clawing back to tie the game, 8-8, too many wasted opportunities led to a 9-8 loss.

Farmer shined when he was working with Rooney, a consummate play-by-play guy who knew how to set up his sidekick. Like many former players, Farmer wasn’t quite as good as the No. guy.

Updating my brackets, I looked forward to a dream second-round game: the 1919 Chicago White Sox against the 1976 Cincinnati Reds. The two greatest players ever banned because of betting scandals, Shoeless Joe Jackson and Pete Rose, on the same field!
