This next video is very special.  Below is an original and complete April 20, 1950 radio broadcast recording of a ballgame between the Brooklyn Dodgers versus the New York Giants at Ebbets Field.  Red Barber announces the game, and this is the very first Brooklyn game heard on a national radio network.  Awesome!  A special bonus is an actual recording of Dodgers organist Gladys Gooding signing the National Anthem, and the voice of Brooklyn stadium announcer Tex Rickards.

The Dodgers’ current contract with Fox expires after the 2013 season. The team had discussed a new deal with Fox last fall, worth at least $6 billion over 25 years. However, as MLB and the Dodgers discussed their differences over the revenue-sharing issue, the Fox exclusive negotiating window expired, enabling Time Warner to initiate negotiations with the team.

"That's my goal," said Kemp, wearing a Dodgers jersey with Jackie Robinson's No. 42 and accompanied by his mother. "I'm hitting off the tee, no soft toss yet. I have my good days and bad days. It's still a little sore. But being ready for the season is all that matters." 
  • Topps is putting together a Cubs stadium give away card set.  I have to wonder if the Dodgers will do the same thing.  Please say yes!
  • RIP, Stan "The Man" Musial.  Did you know that he received his nickname from Brooklyn Dodgers fans.  Every time he came up to the plate against us, Dodger fans would exclaim, "Here Comes The Man."
  • RIP Earl Weaver.  In honor of his feistiness watch this great vintage video of one of his most epic ejections.  A word of warning, there is some bad language.
