This is a must-watch for any baseball fan. America’s pastime gets full “The Wizard of Oz” treatment here for a rare look at old-timey baseball bursting with color. This footage of the 1939 Fall Classic between the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds starts with the conclusion of Game 1, and features a home run from Game 2 and sweeping shots of the original Yankee Stadium decked out in red, white and blue bunting. This is a totally different brand of baseball than what we’re accustomed to these days as fans, dressed up in their Sunday finest, can just wander aimlessly onto the field once the final out is secured. If you don’t get goosebumps watching this, you’re not American. (Or maybe you’re just a Red Sox fan.)
