Holy Cow!

We conclude our 6 podcast series on baseball’s greatest sportscasters with Harry Caray (1914 – 1998).  Caray broadcast Major League Baseball for 53 years. Ed, Farley & Mark review the 2006 PBS documentary, Kokoyakyu – High School Baseball.  Then it’s time for baseball’s greatest showman.  Ed interviews author and former presidential speech writer, Curt Smith about Caray and his legacy.  We then listen as Caray sings Take Me Out to the Ballgame during the first night game at Wrigley Field, August 8, 1988.  The podcast concludes as our PhD Committee gets ready to head to Arizona for our next podcast – Cactus League!
