Videos: SCP Auctions Press Conference -Lasorda Speaks-

These are videos that I shot last week during the press conference of SCP Auctions. As I wrote last week, Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series items will be auctioned off.

First video. Tommy Lasorda talks about the famous Home Run. Mentions a letter that Gibson gave him.

Second video - Lasorda asks Bill Plaschke of the L.A. Times "I'm boring you Bill?" Also mentions he never saw the ball. Just watched Jose Canseco when he was going back to the wall.

Third video - Lasorda believes Mike Scioscia's NLCS home run was bigger than Gibson's homer. But the drama of the home run is what made this homer famous.

I have two more videos. I will upload those tomorrow.

The auction will start this Wednesday. Get all the details on SCP Auctions {linked here}
