Veteran Sportscaster Joe Garagiola Dead at Age 90

Veteran Sportscaster Joe Garagiola Dead at Age 90

Wednesday, 23 March 2016 04:12 PM

Former big league catcher and popular broadcaster Joe Garagiola has died. He was 90.

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks say Garagiola died Wednesday. He had been in ill health in recent years.

Garagiola thrived in his post-retirement career as a glib baseball broadcaster and fixture on the "Today" show. He played eight seasons in the majors, but generations of fans knew him for his 57-year career in broadcasting, including a 30-year association with NBC.

He won baseball's Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in broadcasting in 1991. Garagiola kept working well into his 80s, serving as a part-time analyst for Diamondbacks telecasts.
