A pause before the World Series

One day between the National League Championship Series and the World Series is what’s been allotted, enough time for the Detroit Tigers to fly west for Game 1 tomorrow night against the San Francisco Giants.

Time — television time, to be specific — is all that matters now.

This clip from the “Baseball’s Golden Age” series has nothing to do with the World Series but rather with three perpetually failing teams that left their original cities after playing second fiddle to more successful franchises. This rare (colorized?) footage of the St. Louis Browns, Boston Braves and Philadelphia Athletics is a real treat, a quick glimpse of what became the Baltimore Orioles, Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves and Kansas City and Oakland A’s.

I could watch this stuff forever.
