Back in the day, the World Series was played in the daytime. I remember that if we got our work done, we could listen to the games during school. When I was in 6th grade we even got to place bets! I think I bet on the Pirates, but I don't remember who they played or if they won. I wonder how anyone watched the games while they were at work? (Maybe they weren't on TV yet...1960?) It seems like a pretty all-American classroom activity! We took our Series seriously in those days.
