Dave,

Add Red Steiger to the telecine list. Dick Van Dyke was mentioned......maybe it was a hundred years ago (seems like it)
CBS used to do Saturday Baseball. As I recall Dizzy Dean and Bob Neal were the anouncers and Byron Paul was the Director..
I was on the old field crew which consisted of Vern Cheesman, Sandy Bell, Carl Prince, Marty Tuck, John McMammus, Tom Delilla,
Lou Scanna, and me. WE arrived at Ebbets Field one Saturday morning to broadcast a Dodgers baseball game.
Waiting at the gate was Byron with a friend whom he introduced to us as Dick. Turns out he was Dick Van Dyke,
a rather young fellow who later went out for coffee for the crew.
