In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Jul 23, 2012

Dizzy Dean was the last National League pitcher to win 30 games in one season, in 1934, and he won TWO world series games that year.  He entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953.

But he is probably better-known by more people as a hillbilly baseball play-by-play announcer.  He was on the air from soon after his retirement from baseball in 1947 until 1965.

He did a 15-minute weekly show in the summer of 1948, and in these two episodes Dizzy discusses the 1948 All-Star game, and he lists his own All-Time All-Star team.
