Herb Score R.I.P


Today the Cleveland Indians fan in me is saddened as I learn of the death of long time Indian's broadcaster, Herb Score. I became a baseball fan at the ripe old age of 14 and through the years went to bed listening to Herb and whomever was his partner in the booth that year.

A generation of tribe fans looked forward to hearing his voice. That was our first sign that Spring was on it's way.

Although Herb retired more than 10 years ago, all Indians fans feel a loss today.

Cliff Note: This post is a tribute. For a more detailed report check, with my friend over at Ohio Media Watch.

Point of clarification Suz: I'm too young to remember his playing days, seeing that his rookie year was the year I was born.

But Herb Score to Indians fans was like Harry Caray to Cubs fans.

We have one of the best play by play guys in baseball in Tom Hamilton, but Tom's got a few more years to go before he's considered the institution that Herb Score is.

As much as I love Tom Hamilton..Herb was the main man growing up..Hoping the Tribe would pull it out, Though you knew they probably wouldnt..Herb was that old familiar voice..He WAS Indians Baseball to a generation of fans from the 60's to the 90's..

I have a tribute as well on my blog, along with a link to Ohio Media Watch and other stories about Herb..
