On Saturday evening during the 1997 Friends of Old-Time Radio Convention after the awards were distributed, Jay Hickerson made a somewhat strange request and asked Sybil Trent, Miriam Wolfe, and Vivian Block to come to the stage (Miss Block was not available, having already left the Convention).
Jay Hickerson calls the ladies to the stage.
Of course, the ladies had no idea that Jay was calling them to perform a "Battle of the Baby Criers!" Both women during their careers on radio were called upon to perform baby cries, so this "battle" was indeed a battle of titans!
They requested and received cloth napkins, the better to "muffle" the sound of the babies, and the battle began; first with Miss Trent, and then with Miss Wolfe. And in an impressive climax, they then cried together!

Personally, I agree with Jay - the "Battle" was indeed a tie!
