This was another clip previously here...from October 1980, here's the opening to WPHL-TV's coverage of Game Five of the National League Championship Series. Harry Kalas and Rich (Whitey) Ashburn were live at the Houston Astrodome for this one.

This aired during a time when MLB allowed a team's local TV outlet to produce its own LCS coverage, thus duplicating the game in the home market along with the network broadcast (in this case, ABC). The local stations were also allowed to simulcast the network's World Series feed. Both practices ended after the 1983 season.

Harry Kalas (and Rich Ashburn), R.I.P.
