Sad day indeed.

His voice is one of the things I remember so vividly about my first Yankee game as an 11 year old in 1987 vs. the White Sox.

I remember hearing him in 1966, and asking my father who that was. Even then, as an 8 year old, I felt that that voice was "something different" than others.

Now, decades later, having been at many sporting events in parks all around the USA, I can say with full conviction - there was no one else like him".
