The Chicago Baseball Museum is presenting classic interviews from the archives of CBM historian George Castle’s “Diamond Gems” syndicated weekly baseball radio show, which aired from 1994 to 2010.
This edition features the audio of the “Tenth Inning” show with Jack Brickhouse after the Cubs’ 4-3 victory over the Houston Colt .45s on Sept. 1, 1963. Cubs second baseman Ken Hubbs is the guest. The clip likely is the last Chicago TV interview Hubbs gave before dying in the crash of his private plane in Utah on Feb. 13, 1964. “Diamond Gems” originally aired this interview on Aug. 5, 1997.
“The Diamond Gems Flashback” also features photos of the interviewees from the one-of-a-kind Leo Bauby Photo Collection, emphasizing Chicago baseball. Many photos are available to the general public directly on Ebay via seller name Soxphotos soxphotos | eBay.
