Joe Garagiola Dies at 90

Baseball and Broadcasting legend, Joe Garagiola has died. After a modest career in baseball, Garagiola went on to become one of the top and most beloved broadcasters in sports. He grew up in the Hill section of St. Louis. His career highlights in baseball came during the 1946 World Series with a 4-hit game driving the Cardinals to a world championship. Garagiola once remarked about himself, “Not only was I not the best catcher in the major leagues, I wasn’t even the best catcher on my street.” His greatest achievements, however, were his 30-year relationship with NBC and the Today show. He worked with such broadcasting greats as Curt Gowdy, Tony Kubeck and Bob Costas on “Game of the Week”. In 1988 he became the broadcaster for the Los Angeles Angels and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He retired in 2013. He will be remembered for his humor and his glib style of broadcasting. Joe Garagiola was 90.
