Vin Scully, Ronald Reagan And Bo Jackson At The All-Star Game - 1989

Well, here's a cool one. I started off by searching for Vin Scully because I love him and want him to be an extra Grandpa. Little did I know I also wanted to see Bo Jackson be totally awesome. After we see a clip of Bo covering 2 miles to make a catch in center he drives a Rick Reuschel meatball to the deepest part of Anaheim Stadium. Yes, the Rick Reuschel finished 8th in the Cy voting that year.

And the whole thing is (kinda) narrated by newly minted ex-Prez, Ronald Reagan. Classic TV Friday: It's a time machine, baby.

Ah the 1980's, when the NL used to win All-Star games.

22.67 secs, in case you were wondering.

Sheesh. You'd think an All-Pro running back could run the 120-yard dash quicker than that.

How many AL All Stars can you name in that dugout? I see Ripken, Mattingly, Mac, Tettleton, Dave Stewart and Ruben Sierra. I think the other guys are Alvin Davis, Kent Hrbek, Kelly Gruber, and George Bell

@lar, not in the dug out, but Wade Boggs batting after Bo.

NY had the bases juiced with no outs in the home 3rd with A-Rod, Cano, and Posada coming to the plate and couldn't score one fucking run. Fucking terrible.

UU that's how Reagan sounded off air!

How often do you see it? A guy makes a great play in the field, then comes up the next inning and hits a home run. And Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully is narrating it. And the craziest of crazy American presidents is there, too.
