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.
In this edition, a July 16, 1994 interview with then-Buffalo Bills coach Marv Levy, fresh from four consecutive Super Bowl appearances, is featured. Levy was linked up on the air with 1945 Cubs stars Phil Cavarretta and Andy Pakfo. Levy recalled being a “young serviceman” attending the ’45 World Series at Wrigley FIeld to watch Cavarretta and Pafko play against the Detroit Tigers.
“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.
