The voice of the Dodgers from 1950 to 2016. He was 94.


And here's the call I remember most. It was the 1988 World Series. Kurt Gibson was crippled, almost literally. He had blown out his right knee and torn his left hamstring. He was so gone he didn't even start the game. I remember yelling at the TV at Tommy Lasorda for being an idiot for sending Gibson up there to pinch hit.

Gibson was so gimped, if he put the ball on the ground it was all over. Even if he punched it into right field he was so slow he would still be out.

I was still yelling at the TV when he jumped all over the first pitch and took it deep to right. It's to this day one of the moments of my life I never felt more stupid.


I can still feel Tommy Lasorda doing a "slowly I turn" look at me.
