Tommy. Bob. ’84 Padres. The Iron Horse. The ’37 AL All-Stars.
Tommy Lasorda talking about pitching against the New York Yankees and in particular Mickey Mantle. Watch this, Lasorda is a great story teller. I could listen listen to him tell Baseball stories for hours and would not get the least bit bored.
Bob Uecker, long time voice of the Milwaukee Brewers during his playing days as a Catcher for the Milwaukee Braves. Last week Uecker had his 2nd heart surgery since April (The Surgery was deemed a success). I think I speak for all fans of Baseball when I say get better soon and hopefully you will be back in the broadcasting booth again come Spring Training.
