I have a full copy of this taken from the end of game 7 of the 1986 world series complete with dubbed in commentary from Casey Stengle, also comments from Joe and Vin as well. If anyone would like a copy of this please email me with something in the subject line about this and I can send a copy.

NBC first introduced this particular theme music around the 1986 World Series. They continued to use the theme until the end of the 1989 League Championship Series (when they lost baseball to CBS).

On the "Millennium" episode of "The Man Show" they actually used the late 1980s era "MLB on NBC" theme music. It was when they were recapping the various historical events that occurred during the 20th century (it came at the very end of the segment). This gave me the sense that that particular theme exisited long before NBC adpated it (right around 1986).

The following link bellow contains a snippet of this particular theme at the very beginning:
