i watched this game on the radio. i could see ever pitch, every catch and every hit the announcers made the game so clear in my mind. Now i am seeing on YouTube at the age of 85..
This where it all started for me as a Dodger fan. I’m 80 years old now and watching this is very emotional. Baseball has given me 70 years of joy and disappointment. Love the game.
Do people realize how precious this footage is? There’s no other full game video of any WS game on YT until 1965. Amazing.
This is simply magnificent. As a British 59 year old baseball fan who discovered the game watching the 1986 World series and loves the history of the game. I shall be back for more.
The pitcher gets the ball back and within 5 seconds hes in the motion of delivering the next pitch. . . I love it! I think MLB would benefit greatly if the game was played like this today
I love how after every pitch the batter doesn’t take 50 seconds fixing his batting gloves and starring at the 3rd base coach.. they rarely leave the box once they’re up..
No steroids…no juiced baseballs…no nitwit announcers…real ballplayers..you’ve got Mel Allen…Red Barber…what else do you need? Great stuff!!! Thanks
It’s striking to see the difference between how baseball was played in 1952 versus how it is played today, almost 70 years later. Not much has changed on the field, but it’s notable how the fans are dressed like gentlemen, and how the music came from an organ, while most stadiums nowadays have built-in sound systems to play music from.I don’t think one is necessarily better than the other, but I would love to witness a 1950s-style baseball game to see for myself how my grandparents and great grandparents enjoyed baseball.Reading the comments while watching this, I’m seeing people of all ages, ranging from teenagers such as myself to people were around to see this game live, come together to appreciate what I believe is one of the greatest videos on the internet. It’s truly a wonderful sight.
Jeez. Mantle, Berra, Jackie, Johnny Mize, the Scooter, Billy Martin, The Duke, Hodges, Red Barber and Mel Allen all in glorious black and white. I cannot get the smile off of my face.
I was four years old. This is like the Twilight Zone. The legends play live again. Mantle’s Home run gave me goosebumps. Love it.
What a great era to be a baseball fan.
The background ambiance is just baseball magic. You can here the crowd, the ball in the mitt and best of all the PA announcer without all that loud walk up music they play today. Makes it seem more like a nightclub than a ballpark nowdays.
How good was the pitching back then compared to now?
No batting gloves. Dead 50’s era balls that weren’t juiced. Hot, baggy, flannel uniforms. No batting helmets. Fielders glovex that were more mitts than gloves. No finely manicured turf. No pitch counts or relievers coming in and getting one out. Yet, these guys played the game in grand, Hall of Fame fashion. Baseball at it’s purest
What a great game from a time long gone by. No batting gloves, few helmets, no replay, no challenges, nobody standing at the plate admiring home runs, simple organ music between innings…just guys playing the game hard. The Barber and Mel, straight forward and understated. “This is game seven and out”. Love it, thanks for posting
What an absolute gem…very watchable quality and a great game. And you’re never ever going to see 4 and 5 hitters bunt for consecutive hits again in our lifetime!
“I tell you the truth it’s just gotten to the point now where it’s just past tense, even though we’re playing in the present.” – Mel Allen with Jackie Robinson up bases loaded 0-1 count, two outs, Yankees leading 4-2, bottom of the 7th. Pure poetry.
This video is an absolute treasure. Thank you for posting!
I’m honestly impressed on the quality of the video it was nice for its time
Guess who is failing math but instead of studying for the exam, she is watching a 3hrs long 1952’s baseball game…That’s right, all of us

This is easily one of the greatest moments in sports history. So much emotion. I get goosebumps every time I watch this.
The DBacks outscored the Yankees 37-14 in this World Series. That’s frickin insane for a 7 game series.
2:35:44 What Tim McCarver says next about Rivera is 100% exactly what happened. That was the most brilliant call of all time, the pitcher literally threw it inside and it was a hit that went to shallow out field, when everyone was shifted in. That is a man that knows his baseball right there.
Under the circumstances, has there ever been a more unlikely clutch hit in a World Series Game 7 than the one Tony Womack delivers at 2:32:44? Rivera historically was the most money pitcher in World Series history. And Womack took a great pitch and turned on it…something 98% of hitters could never do against Mo. People far too often forget his AB.
This is how a game 7 should look, sound and field
probably the best WS in history
15 years later and I still get chills from Jesse Mcguire’s rendition of the star spangled banner
I’m by no means a baseball fan, but goddamn this was one of the best playoff series ever. When the Yankees won all three at home (two of which were from BK Kim’s complete chokes) it was just a “WTF just happened?” moment. What I always thought was so great about this as an Arizona sports fan is that all anyone was talking about during this time was New York�because of the World Trade Center, and everyone expected the Yankees to win (especially since they won the previous 3 years) and how uplifting it would be for New York,�and it was New York this and New York that. It was getting all of this attention just because it was a New York team, then suddenly here comes this little team from Arizona who completely stunned everyone.Definitely a great moment for Arizona sports.
This world series is the ultimate underdog story.
I’m not even a Diamondbacks fan, but I remember exactly where I was when they won.� This was incredible.
I’m 32 years old, a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan, but during this series, I put my loyalty to the Redlegs on a hiatus until this series reached its end. I was 17 when this happened… 9/11 had just happened, we were united as Americans no matter what team we rooted for, and I rooted for these Diamondbacks from the start of the postseason until the end and I went as crazy as these fans did in my home in the small town of Sardinia, Ohio. It was and truly one of the greatest moments I’ve ever seen and will ever see and a moment that will be etched in our minds forever.
Womack’s ninth-inning game tying double was undoubtedly the most important of his career!
Legendary finish to one of the best World Series in history. To see the Diamondbacks come back and dethrone the 3x champions was incredible to watch. I knew the Yankees met their match once the series started and I knew the series would be the longest the Yankees had to endure in all of their battles, but the Diamondbacks truly earned this by going through the best closer in the game at the time: Mariano Rivera.
Tim McCarver has the most underrated call in the history of sports. He straight up called the EXACT thing that won the WS.
Schilling Vs. Clemens, can’t get any better than that for Game 7.
Love the spirit and crowd reaction. Cant wait to have fans back in the stadiums.
Watched this game when it actually happened. When Randy Johnson came out in relief of Schilling, after just pitching the game before, goosebumps….just goosebumps.
The Yankees “dynasty” died this night. Yes they won the pennant in 03 and the world series in 2009 but they never again had the aura of invincibility. The 96-01 Yankees didn’t have the most talented players most of the time (98 the exception) but they always had that guy that made the clutch hit, the clutch pitch or the clutch catch when it counted. They came 2 outs away from 4-peating a series they were thoroughly dominated and needed 2 out and out miracles just to push to Game 6. Aft that, they were never the same. You had the sense they could be beaten and as the core of the 96-01 team disappeared one by one, the fear disappeared as well. In 2002 was anyone afraid when John Vander Wall stepped to the plate? Or Karim Garcia in 2003? Or Miguel Cairo in 2004? Once Nelson, Stanton and Mendoza moved on…were teams afraid of Paul Quantrill, Kyle Farnsworth and Jay Witasik? Bottom line was the Yankees were never the same again, and nobody fears them anymore.
This was a GREAT World Series and a GREAT Game Seven – from the amazing rendition of the national anthem to the dramatic comeback in the bottom of the ninth! Baseball at its best.
This is probably one of the greatest Game 7s in history. This was an amazing baseball game.

I got so many chills, watching my favorite player break an 80 year old record! Just amazing, no words can fully describe.
So it’s been over a decade since Ichiro set this record and no one has really come close to it, in fact Ichiro himself came closet with 238 in 2007 – which is some way off 262.�Makes me wonder how long this record will stand for…probably many, many years.
It would have been great if Ichiro played his whole career in the states. �Could’ve had 4,000 hits easy.
If it had to be any player, I’m glad it was Ichiro. He’s a class act, who did it all the right way.I love that he went to Sisler’s daughter and was so respectful to her.
Nobody will break Ichiro’s single season hits record because teams are employing the shift regularly from here on out, which takes away 20-30 hits from a batter every season. ESPN’s E60 did a segment on the defensive shift and the prevalence thereof.
In 2004, Mariners finished last in the American League West at 63–99, but it’s a year of individual achievements for Mariner and former Mariner players: Ichiro’s Hits-toryRandy Johnson pitched the 17th perfect game and notched the 4000th strikeout (for Dbacks) Ken Griffey Jr. (in Reds uniform) hit his 500th home run on Father’s DayEdgar Martínez retired with a Roberto Clemente award
I think Ichiro’s season hitting record will last even longer than Sislers.Between 1920-1930, there were 5 250+, but since then only one(Ichiro at 262), even though games added 8 more in 1964.I don’t know what was different in 1920-1930 but Sisler wasn’t far ahead of the rest.On the other hand, since 1930, closest came to 250 were 240 by 2 players(Boggs in 1985, Earstad in 2000) besides Ichiro(246, 262).And as you know, before anybody gets to 262, he has to get to 250 first.Just imagine, hundreds years from now, every time somebody gets close to 262, Ichiro’s name will come up.Or that, baseball no longer exists.
Moments like this are what MLB fans live for!!!! GOD I LOVE BASEBALL!!!!40:44 Ichiro surpasses Sisler… YW!!
Ichiro para mi uno de los mejores jugadores de todos los tiempos,grande de verdad
ICHIRO was very glad to make hit at that night just #258, and he made new record of hits. Then, at last he made 262hits during this season.Ichiro was the greatest player of Major League at that time, I think so!
Next to Rickey Henderson, Ichiro definitely has to be the best leadoff hitter in the history of the game, and probably in the top 10 for best contact hitters.
George Sisler’s family is really cool to be there to support Ichiro breaking the record.
still an amazing record
