Critical Past: OLD NEWSREELS!

Found a cool site: Critical Past. It’s a collection of old newsreels and stock footage. While primarily meant to be for sale to people, the full things are still available for all to view, for free, youtube style. Not surprisingly, there are a lot of baseball-related ones (here is a sampling):
Unedited footage of Lou Gehrig Day
Astrodome opens.
The Monterey, Mexico “Perfect Game” team wins the LLWS.
Orioles arrive in Baltimore
Roger Maris hits 61
A All-American Girls Baseball League game.
