Nations: Bring back “Home Run Derby” to television

May 14, 2013

An early Monday morning on the couch led me to flip through the cable box over to ESPN’s Classic channel, seeing that there was not anything currently on besides info-commercials. When I finally flipped over, I was delighted to see the grainy, black and white re-run of the 1960 television show, “Home Run Derby”. In the second episode of the lone syndicated season, the Chicago Cub hall of famer Ernie Banks fell to the legendary New York Yankee Mickey Mantle 5-3.
