Longtime Atlanta Braves announcer Skip Caray died Sunday. He was 68.

Anyone who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s was familiar with Caray and probably watched him more than any other baseball announcer. Caray broadcast Braves games for 33 years. Believe it or not, when WTBS was “The Superstation” (before ESPN got its baseball contract) more people got their baseball fix by watching Braves games than any other station. In fact, the Atlanta Braves were marketed as “America’s Team” because all of their games were on national cable tv. Skip Caray was the Braves lead announcer.

Caray, of course, was the son of legendary baseball announcer Harry Caray.
