here are a few of his greatest moments..
The morbid ..
"There's a deep fly ball... Winfield goes back, back... his head hits the wall ... it's rolling towards second base."
"Rich Folkers is throwing up in the bullpen."
"Boros is not with the team today because he's attending his daughter's funeral. Oh, wait, it's her wedding."
"I sure hope you're staying alive for the upcoming Dodgers series."
"Gene Richards swings, the ball bounces foul and hits him in the head. No harm done."
"When you lose your hands, you can't play baseball."
"Renko has just about had it. Pretty soon somebody will come out of the dugout with a fork and get him."
"The Phillies beat the Cubs today in a doubleheader. That puts another keg in the Cubs' coffin.".
"From the way Denny's shaking his head, he's either got an injured shoulder or a gnat in his eye."
"Edwards missed getting Stearns at third base by an eyeball."
"The ex-left-hander Dave Roberts will be going for Houston."
What are you watching?
"The first pitch to Tucker Ashford is grounded into left field. No, wait a minute. It's ball one. Low and outside."
"And Kansas City is at Chicago tonight, or is it Chicago at Kansas City? Well, no matter as Kansas City leads in the eighth 4 to 4."
"Larry Lintz steals second standing up. He slid, but he didn't have to."
"Johnny Grubb slides into second with a standup double."
"Turner pulls into second with a sun-blown double."
"There's a shot up the alley. Oh, it's just foul."
"And it's a long drive down the line to centerfield."
"McCovey swings and misses, and its fouled back"
What did he just say?
"On the mound is Randy Jones, the left-hander with the Karl Marx hairdo."
"Sometimes, big trees grow out of acorns. I think I heard that from a squirrel."
"Gonzo leaps like a giraffe and grabs it."
"Hats off to drug abusers everywhere."
"Tony Gwynn, the fat batter behind Finley, is waiting."
"Larry Moffett is 6' 3". Last year he was 6" 6"."
"All the Padres need is a fly ball in the air."
"Hector Torrez, how can you communicate with Enzo Hernandez when he speaks Spanish and you speak Mexican?"
Upon hearing Glenn Beckert's planned retirement: "Well, I hope before Glenn goes, he'll come up here so we can give him a big hug and a kiss, because that's the kind of guy he is."
"Sunday is Senior Citizens' Day. And if you want to become a senior citizen, just call the Padre ticket office."
"Zane Smith is a guy who can shut you out as well as look at you."
"I like to use big words so people will think I know what I'm talking about."
