Thanks to the Braves being a nationally broadcast team forever, I got to hear Skip Caray plenty of times over the years. His health had been failing him for the last year, and he passed away yesterday, in his sleep, at the age of 68. He was just nine days shy of his 69th birthday.
Over his long career, he called baseball (Braves), football (University of Missouri), and basketball (St. Louis/Atlanta Hawks). He started with the Braves in 1976 and never left, working both TV and radio.
Camden Chat sends our best wishes to the family and friends of Skip Caray, and to the Atlanta Braves organization. He will no doubt be missed.
