Drayer scored a pretty remarkable piece with Ron Fairly. They walk down a hall, looking at lithographs of the old ball parks. Fairly just talks about the fields - Polo Grounds, Ebbets Field, et al - and gets into some stories about each park. Snider, Drysdale, Kofax...man, Fairly played in a fun era.
Fairly used to drive me kind of crazy when he was doing games with Dave but I could listen to his stories like this all day long.

You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all. ~Earl Weaver

There are some people so addicted to exaggeration that they can't tell the truth without lying. - Josh Billings
