The game of ball is glorious."

Bob Casey, R.I.P.

Minnesota Twins : News:
One of the truly distinct voices in the game of baseball was silenced early Sunday, when Twins public-address announcer Bob Casey died at the age of 79 as a result of complications of liver cancer and pneumonia.
A PA man for 44 seasons and the only one in Twins history, Casey passed away at 12:30 a.m. at the Veterans' Medical Center in Minneapolis.
The Twins said Sunday that they would dedicate the 2005 season to Casey's memory.

And remember, folks: "Do not throw anything--or anybody--onto the playing field!"

Vade in pace, Mr. Casey. It won't be the same without you. (Especially when Frank Catalanotto comes to town.)
