First Baseball Broadcast 100 -- August 5, 2021


Catholic Weekly, 22-September-1961

100 years ago today, on 05-August-1921, pioneering Pittsburgh radio station KDKA made what they feel is the first radio broadcast of a baseball game. Someone took notes during the game and dropped them over the wall to a kid who ran back to the station. An announcer read the notes. The Pirates beat the Phillies 8-5.
