Herb Score passes away at age 75.

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.

From Joe Posnanski's blog.....


    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

I grew up listening to Indians games and left before he retired. 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.

Anyway MLB in the future could enact a Scott Boras gag order during the World Series similar to the one they enacted on Steinbrenner in the 80's when he used to fire and hire and fire and hire managers during the Series?
