Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Alright! Lemme hear ya! Ah-One! Ah-Two! Ah-Three! Take me out the ballgame…" Sports broadcaster Harry Caray's robust, if not entirely melodic renditions of "Take Me Out the Ball Game" are still remembered fondly by the Wrigley Field faithful nine years after the death of the famed Chicago Cubs announcer. Caray's spirited play-by-play calls and unapologetic partisanship made him a fan favorite during his 11-year stop in the Windy City. Current Cubs radio announcer Pat Hughes retrieves some of Harry's magic with this affectionate biography. Harry Caray: Voice of the Fans includes a bonus audio of his trademark calls and most famous calls.
