20th anniversary of Bream-Cabrera: audio of the entire bottom of 9th


As we continue to try to wash the taste of that debacle of a Wild Card game from our mouths, I offer TCers something to remind us of much, much better times for Braves fans.

Around 2000, I saw an ad in some baseball card magazine selling audio cassettes of radio calls of classic and/or unusual baseball games. I bought two Braves games: a 1978 game in which the Expos won on a lazy Sunday at Fulton Cty. Stadium, 19-0, rapping out 28 hits, including 8 home runs (interestingly, this game took place 2 days before the Braves and Gene Garber stopped Pete Rose's 44-game hit streak); and, much more gratifying, Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS. The recording of the latter game was actually fairly poor, as it was taped on a station that wasn't coming in particularly well. But you can still hear everything and feel the tremendous excitement of Skip Caray's (RIP) call of the glorious bottom of the ninth.

This Sunday is the 20th anniversary of that game, the end of which I consider the single most EXCITING moment in Atlanta Braves history (not the BEST, mind you; I understand winning the World Series is "better" than winning the NLCS in dramatic fashion). To mark the occasion, I digitized the recording of the bottom of the ninth, put it through some recording software to make it sound a little smoother, and put the whole thing up on Soundcloud for everyone to enjoy.

Listen and re-live the magic: "A lotta room in right-center, if he hits one there we can dance in the streets...the 2-1...LINE DRIVE LEFT FIELD! ONE RUN IN! HERE COMES BREAM! HERE'S THE THROW TO THE PLATE HE IS.......SAFE. BRAVES WIN! BRAVES WIN! BRAVES WIN!...(with a tinge of disbelief) Braves win!"
