Throwback League

    75 Red Sox v 01 Diamondbacks; Desert Heat (Randy Johnson vs Luis Tiant in Phoenix)


    Bank One Ballpark is the setting for this showcase pitching matchup between the ’75 Red Sox and ’01 Diamondbacks. Yaz and Rice and Lynn didn’t beat Don Gullett in Game 7 of ’75 but how will they fare against the Big Unit in a one-game winner take-all?  Mark Grace and Luis Gonzalez lead the 5-seed Snakes vs the 12-seed BoSox.  Commentary from Jon Miller precedes guest appearances from Tiant and Peter Gammons later in the broadcast.
