On this 1963 LP, Hall of Famer Waite Hoyt spins yarns during rain delays over his long career as Reds broadcaster. The last track ends abruptly, but that’s the way it is on the wax. There was a volume two in the series, which was devoted to Babe Ruth.

    Do you know where I could listen to famous Waite Hoyt story of fellow Brooklynite baseball player yelling (in native accent) “Hoyt’s Hurt”?

    As a youth growing up out in the Butler County country during Waites years I certainly do appreciate finding these broadcasts.
    I spent many a hot summer night setting with my Father on the front porch listening to the Reds.
