I recall reading that. When he did the Cincinnati Reds' games, he had an incredible call in the last inning of the last game of the (1972) NLCS when Pittsburgh led by a run and was about to clinch and head to the World Series; then Johnny Bench hit a game tying home run and the Reds eventually won.
