Whoever they have up in the booth, they're certainly not going to make anyone old enough to forget Chuck Thompson and Bill O'Donnell.  Not even in the same league.

For those of you old enough to remember the magical summer of 1979, here's one of the great moments with Bill O'Donnell calling the play.  At the end you can hear Charlie Eckman and Chuck Thompson add to the excitement.

You had to pick one where they beat Sparky and Trammell and the Tigers, didn't you?  :wink:

 

I had Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey (the 'voice of God' ) on the radio, and George Kell and Al Kaline for the 40 TV telecasts at the time.

 

We ALL had it so good back then.

The birth of Oriole Magic.  My favorite radio call of all time.

Bill O'Donnell nickname, Words. was a terrific announcer.  He died way to young from cancer.
