It Is Gone!


Regular readers know I'm a huge radio fan.  When it comes to baseball, I'd rather listen to it on radio than watch it on TV.  Some news broke Tuesday that made me especially happy.

For the second half of the season, John Sterling, who has been ruining Yankees' broadcasts for years, won't be going on most road trips.  That means about half of the games after the All Star break will be listenable again!

Sterling has been a chore for 34 years.  He is 84 years old, and he has earned the right to call the shots when it comes to his departure.  He should have known, a long time ago, that it was time to exit the stage.

Cutting back on road trips is nothing new.  Many of the older broadcasters have done it.  The Dodgers' Vin Scully didn't venture past Denver in his last several years.

I'm just happy to hear new, and less self centered, voices.
