My brother and I attended the 1984 ALCS Game 3 Clincher versus the Royals at Tiger Stadium (seated in straightaway centerfield in the lower-deck bleachers) but this was before we had a VCR (remember those?) and I never got to see it replayed.
Twenty-five years later, it’s iTunes to the rescue.
I stumbled on the game as a download from the iTunes Store for a mere $1.99. (!)
You’ll find a boatload of games available for that price in the “Baseball’s Best” section. If you’re going to buy the ’84 game, scroll to Item #87. For whatever reason, the games are not in chronological order.
Do yourself a favor and buy it if only to enjoy Al Michaels‘ afro and the beauty of Howard Cosell interviewing Willie Wilson about his drug-related suspension that included early parts of the ’84 season.
One technical note: You don’t need an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPod with video to view the game; you can watch the game on your computer in iTunes.
