Man, I love stuff like this. Chris Davis of the Orioles hits a home run and gets greeted by no one in the dugout. So he high fives a bunch of invisible teammates. Awesome.
This is, according to Deadspin, the only known surviving footage of the 1919 World Series that was thrown by the White Sox (Black Sox). This footage was "part of a cache of newsreels from the Canadian Yukon that were at one point used to fill in a swimming pool that was being converted into a hockey rink. The newsreels were discovered in 1978, and sat in an archive until this year, when a White Sox fan working on a documentary about the lost films stumbled on them. Good luck for him, and better luck for us." (via)
Pretty cool. Watch a piece of history.
Not only is this ump's strikeout call great, the fan laughs like Alan Alda in M.A.S.H. I've watched this a dozen times in 5 minutes...
