In a story that the USA Today Game On blog has just put online, it’s so sad to report that long-time Atlanta Braves announcer Skip Caray has died. Skip got a national following for doing Braves games on TBS and was well-liked by baseball fans all over.
His son, Chip who does games for TBS as well as calling the Braves on Peachtree TV, said the death came as a shock.
Mark Bowman of MLB.com also looks back at Caray’s career.
The Braves have released a statement tonight on Skip’s passing.
Carey, the son of legendary Hall of Fame announcer Harry Caray, is survived by his wife, Paula, four children including Skip, and seven grandchildren.
