The best thing to do if you miss a telecast is go to Gameday on MLB.com, and watch the Gameday "Condensed Game" video. It allows you to see the whole game in about 8 minutes, complete with the local broadcasters calling the result of the last pitch of each at-bat (hit, homer, out, GIDP, excellent defensive play, etc).

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
