Views: 1847

Here's an edition of the post-game 10th Inning show on WGN Channel 9, hosted by Jack Brickhouse, with guest Bob Lurie who had just assumed majority ownership of the San Francisco Giants. This was after a grueling 14-inning session which saw the Cubs beat the Giants at Candlestick Park, 6-5, in the first game of a doubleheader. This was also from the days when remote broadcasts such as the Cubs / Giants match carried this day by WGN went through separate transmissions (one for the vid...

He was one of the ub...
