UPDATE! While heading out on Christmas Eve, my wife and I just happened to catch a great segment on NPR where a tape of Red Barber’s recreated call of the final out of the second of Johnny Vander Meer’s no-hitter was played. Here’s the summary from NPR:
Baseball broadcaster Jon Miller talks about a recently discovered recording of a baseball play-by-play that was made 41 years after the actual game took place. At a broadcasters’ conference in Orlando in 1979, Red Barber recorded a gripping play-by-play of a 1938 game at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field.
