From the late 1930s until 1964, Mel Allen was the Voice of the New York Yankees. He later returned to do TV play-by-play for 10 years and hosted 'This Week in Baseball' until his passing in 1996. Allen's vivid broadcasting of the Yankees covered some of the greatest ballplayers of all time, including Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. This tribute CD includes some of his great World Series calls and tracks on the 1961 home run chase, Lou Gehrig Day, Mickey Mantle Day, his Hall of Fame acceptance speech and Dave Righetti's no-hitter. 67 mins. Audio CD.
