Thanks, Tiger. I just re-read everyone's posts, and what was cool about them was how they all branched off into other topics, covering a myriad of areas.

The three major differences 30+ years ago, going by consensus, were :

1-Less ( or no ) holding.

2-Larger ( obviously ) crowds. But more importantly, both fans and players alike, treated it in like a true event, and dressed for it!

3-Less cortadas/dejadas ( kill shots ), and more players appreciating the ART of having that pelota hum along the side wall.

It must've been nice...
