A legendary sportscaster has another game to call from the sky above.
FOX’s Jared Max reports:
Bob Wolff is the only person to have called the play-by-play of every championship in our four major pro sports. His voice connected to the greatest hits of sports, from the 1958 NFL championship, known as the “Greatest Game Ever Played,” to the 1956 World Series:
(Wolff) “Strike three, a no-hitter. A perfect game for Don Larson!”
Bob Wolff’s career spanned 78 years, longest consecutive run by a broadcaster, as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. Wolff’s career began in 1939 while a student at Duke University. He became the voice of the Washington Senators baseball team. For decades, play-by-play man for the New York Knicks and New York Rangers. One of only two men enshrined in the Halls of Fame for both basketball and baseball:
(Wolff) “Preparation and content are the keys to survival.”
Bob Wolff closed his 1995 acceptance speech in Cooperstown with a ukulele:
(Wolff) “Because it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the all ball game.”
Bob Wolff was 96.
