    1921: The World Series was carried on radio for the first time as Newark, New Jersey station WJZ relayed a telephoned play-by-play account of the first game from the Polo Grounds. (Although the New York Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the New York Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.)
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I had to go back and refresh my memory on where the term 'belt' originated.

    A pitch stays a 'pitch' until a batter makes contact with it at belt-level. When it leaves the bat, it's now a 'belt'... unless it drifts into foul-territory, where an announcer should know better than to call it a 'belt'.
