Box Score of the Week

It's an early 1987 matchup featuring the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets.


Jack Buck was the long time radio voice of the Cardinals. On this day, his son Joe turned 18-years old. While sitting in the back of the Shea Stadium broadcast booth about halfway through the game, Joe was stunned to hear his father Jack say "...And now, for the fifth inning, my son, the birthday boy, Joe Buck."

Yes, this game was technically the broadcasting debut of Joe Buck, one of the more prominent announcing voices in MLB today.
