In 1959, WRCU became the only college radio station in the nation to carry the Yankees’ daytime ball games. General Manager at the time, Glen Tryon worked for more than a year to affiliate WRCU with the Home of Champions Network which broadcast the games. The sportscasters for the games were Mel Allen and Phil Rizzuto.
