He is not announcing as much and he does not sound very good when he is on.

I know he was sick last season but I can not remember what it was?

Thank you

Some have suggested a stroke, but I don't think anything official has been said about that. Or could be viral infection effects.

He was sick and had a severe reaction to the medication they gave him. He did not have a stroke. He sounds tons better than he did last year.

Thanks

A stroke would make sense given his speech and the facial issues

As mentioned, he is a MUCH better this year than last season. At least this season he sounds somewhat normal. Hope he keeps improving!

Last year in his 1st game they pulled him half way through it cause he sounded so bad. I hope he makes a full recovery.

This game should be over. And now Hillman brings in a pitcher that Ichiro is hitting over .500 against. :shake:

I must be the only one that thinks he sounds fine. A little different, but fine. I can still tell it's him

He sounds like a bee stung his tongue or something.

There has been some speculation that he had Bell's Palsy. Same thing that JR from the WWE has. Split said it was a viral infection that did it to him as well so who knows.

There are viral infections that affect the nervous system out there. A lot of the times, the symptoms are very similar to a stroke (i.e. slurred speech, one side of the face droopy, etc). I'm pretty sure Split had no reason to lie, especially given the fact that his story matches up with the symptoms.

I agree no reason to doubt split but those were the two things I have heard the most. Either way it is sad to hear him in that manner as he was becoming one of my favorite announcers.

Bell's Palsy goes away with treatment. I had it the summer between my Jr-Sr year in HS.
