He was a good announcer. I lived in Central PA for a while and used to hear him do Phillies games. Too bad John Sterling for the Yankees wasn't the one to go. That guy sucks donkey nuts.

One of the best. Glad he got to make this call before he passed:

This would sum up what I feel about him and his voice.

"He had a voice that made tigers purr. And wore suites that made Sinatra look like a hobo."

Best announcer ever IMO. It was like everything slowed down when he was on. You missed no details.
