Video Introduction of first World Series night game - 1971 Baltimore Orioles versus Pittsburgh Pirates

This is something to remember : 40 years and counting....baseball history at his best... the 398th game in the history of the World Series, This is the very first night game in World Series History. 

Pre-game show with Joe Garagiola & Sandy Koufax, and then it's thrown to the booth for Curt Gowdy and Bob Prince.  Hat tip to Josh Wilker of Cardboard Gods for finding this clip.  Tremendous names in both lineup introductions!
