RIP Bob Murphy



The greatest baseball play by play man i've ever heard... Grew up listening to him... his voice IS baseball to any Met fan. He shall be missed.

http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/NASApp/m...bob_murphy.jsp

that page contains some of his greatest calls... including "GETS BY BUCKNER!! GETS BY BUCKNER!!"

he's a legend around these parts... started with the mets in their very first year, 1962. called every great moment in mets history. he's one of the few baseball announcers to have been inducted into cooperstown... he's the man. he will be sorely missed.

I heard some of the tributes on WFAN. (and great stories about his humility, as well as his goat's-knee elbow replacement and riding a blind mare to school as a kid.) I used to listen to him call their games in high school and can't believe he's gone!
