A Baseball Legend Passes Away

Tim McCarver, widely recognized as the greatest, most beloved baseball analyst passed away yesterday at age 81.

McCarver spent 60 years in baseball as an all-star catcher and Hall of Fame broadcaster.

He called a record 24 World Series for ABC, CBS and FOX.

His 18-year broadcast partner Joe Buck reflected on the legendary baseball-lifer…

“I learned really fast that if you were in his inner circle, he would be a fierce defender of you and for you,” Buck said. “He taught me how to deal with criticism because he had been criticized, his whole broadcast career. And sometimes it was because he was a teacher of the game. If some player or manager didn’t manage or play the way he thought the game should be played, he let a national audience know it. He was always the first one in the clubhouse the next day. If that person had something to say back to him, he would engage and stood his ground, but it was fair.”

Fans quickly took to social media to express their condolences and share their memories of McCarver…
