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.

At least it makes the Royals appear to be a big league team. Worst case scenario for the Royals is that the way salaries are going this off-season, the Royals might have signed Meche as a method to obtain better players at the trade deadline.
