Don Drysdale: "Gibson, a deep sigh...re-gripping the bat...shoulders just shrugged...now goes to the top of the helmet, as he always does...steps in with that left foot. Eckersley, working out of the stretch...here's the three-two pitch...and a drive hit to right field (voice changes to high pitch) WAY BACK! THIS BALL... IS GONE!!! (After delay) This crowd will not stop! They can't believe the ending! And this time, Mighty Casey did NOT strike out!" Vin Scully: "High fly ball into right field, she i-i-i-is... gone!!"
