MLB.com unearthed this gem, it’s Harry Caray interviewing Bill Murray before the first attempted night game in Wrigley history, 25 years ago tonight.
Nobody did an interview like Harry. Â He gave Bill a beer, asked about Bill’s mom, and yelled, “You must be Scrooged!” at Bill when Bill promoted his new movie.
This is priceless. Â As you remember the game was rained out, so the first official night game was the next night 8-9-88. Â Doesn’t have the same ring.
UPDATE: It just got better. Â Over at Tony Pierce’s Busblog, he’s got the first 10 minutes of the broadcast starting with Bill and Harry and going through past the first pitch. Â It even has a Murph’s 76 commercial! Â Dan Roan is wearing a tux in the bleachers and he has hair. Â Of course his “wireless” mic works for shit.
Oh, and remember that today Rick Sutcliffe said this game was the highlight of his career. Â Phil Bradley obviously thinks so.
