Sad news to report – one of baseball’s greatest broadcasters, Jack Buck, died this morning. He did play-by-play for St. Louis Cardinals games for 48 years, and although I never got to hear him on a regular basis, I watched enough playoff games over the last 20 years to appreciate just how graceful and fantastic a broadcaster he was – perfect for a game of baseball. I’ll never forget watching Kirk Gibson’s epic home run in the World Series about 10 years ago and Buck’s minimalist comment “I can’t believe what I just saw.”

With bad news, however, comes good news – SLOAN is coming to Boston on July 23.
