People around baseball are mourning the passing of radio broadcaster Harry Kalas. These announcers are irreplaceable, and I fear we are experiencing the literal and figurative death of baseball on the radio.
I've been following the Twins primarily on the radio this season. John Gordon's tendency to accent the strangest words provides welcome relief from Dick Bremer perpetually thinking a pop-fly to the second baseman has a chance. (I suppose it's a valid assumption with a Twins pitcher on the hill). There's also a certain charm to baseball on the radio.
