“Here comes Bream! Here’s the throw to the plate! He iiiiiiiisssssssss … SAFE!  BRAVES WIN, BRAVES WIN, BRAVES WIN…”

Those words still give me chills as I picture Sid Bream sliding into home plate.  Legendary Atlanta Braves broadcaster, Skip Caray died at his home on Sunday.  

Braves Announcer Skip Caray Dies

When I think of the Atlanta Braves, I hear Skip Caray’s voice.  I already miss the days where I could turn on TBS every night at 6:05 or 6:35 and hear Skip Caray call the game.  You could tell that he had a personal relationship with most of the players and it was great hearing the stories that he would tell.  Skip Caray will be missed!
