He was the American League ROY in 1955, and according to Ted Williams had the best fastball of any left-hander he ever faced. His pitching career was effectively ended when he was hit in the eye by a line drive. He turned to broadcasting and was the Indians' radio broadcaster from 1968-1997. I remember summer afternoons at my great-grandmother's house, listening to him on the radio. Promote this thread!

Terry Pluto asked him why he would never say something like, “Well, this is a pretty obvious bunting situation” or “He will probably try to steal second here.” And Herb said this: “No, that’s a Dad’s job.” RIP Herb (edited by Big Bad on 11.11.08 1311)

He was the voice of the Indians to me and he had to call a lot of really bad games and did so with grace. Plus, before the line drive, he was on helluva a pitcher.
