Synopsis

Celebrating the 61st anniversary of the first baseball game shown on television, a Cincinnati Reds-Brooklyn Dodgers contest at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field, the program broadcasts a Los Angeles Dodgers-Chicago Cubs matchup from Wrigley Field, to show how far technology has advanced in televising baseball. The first half of the first inning, is broadcast as it would have been in 1939, with two primitive black and white cameras and a stick mike. As the game progresses, Fox Sports shows how succeeding years brought improvements in audio and video.
