Yankees' Steve Hamilton throws Folly Floater

from hadrons
"Yankees' Steve Hamilton gets out the Indians' Tony Horton on his famous "folly floater" and Horton crawled back to the dugout on all fours. This is the old Yankee ballpark and the Yankee catcher is a very young Thurman Munson. See the old park's "death valley" in centerfield, reaching 463 feet in right center."

Great comments from youtube viewers. Wonderful to see this clip from 1970, with the real Yankee Stadium in the background and a young Phil Rizzuto behind the mike.

I only just found this post. That was one of the best YouTube clips I've seen. That's what makes the internet so worthwhile.
