Video of Yankees vs. A's April 24, 1934

Here is a spectacular video of the New York Yankees vs. the Philadelphia A's with sound!

This is amazing footage of opening day at Yankee Stadium on April 24, 1934.  It was posted recently on Net54 Baseball Forums and I wanted to share it with my readers in the event you didn't see it there.

You'll see Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx posing for photographers before the game and Connie Mack and Joe McCarthy wishing each other luck for the season.  Then you see Mayor La Guardia throw out the first pitch.

It's a fascinating thing to see these prewar players in action, but to hear them talking, and the crowd roaring in the background, makes it even more special to watch. 

Enjoy the hobby's a great one.
