In this episode of My First Ballgame, we are joined by the great Sweeny Murti of WFAN and SportsNet New York, who has expertly covered the New York Yankees for more than two decades. Sweeny takes us to June 8, 1975, where we'll trot onto the steaming Astroturf of Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium for the Phillies' 4-2 victory over the Dodgers. We'll discuss Sweeny's affection for Greg "The Bull" Luzinski, swap behind-the-scenes stories with Aaron Boone, meet Tim McCarver and Tug McGraw at a Harrisburg, Pa. mall, get to know the legendary Harry Kalas, see the 1986 Mets in person, and reveal how a one-time Phillies diehard was able to remain impartial in the press box for the 2009 World Series against the Yankees.
