To the Press Box in the Sky

Herb Carneal, the voice of the Twins since 1962, is gone. A legend in Minnesota sport's broadcasting has passed.

I remember Ray Scott more for his network experiences, but I grew up with Halsey Hall and Herb Carneal. As I reached my teen years, Hall retired, and Herb become the stalwart.
I almost always have the radio tuned in to the Twins, but especially for those home games to catch Herb and his calls. In 1998, he had downsized himself to limited duty, but that didn't effect his delivery.

The final voice of my youth has been silenced. With the move to KSTP, this season was already going to have a different feel to it on the airwaves. But now that Herb is gone, it won't ever be the same.
