Legendary broadcaster Dick Enberg dies

Dick EnbergLegendary Major League Baseball broadcaster Dick Enberg died Thursday at the age of 82.

Enberg had called San Diego Padres games for the past seven years before retiring at the end of the 2017 season.

Enberg was a big fan of the no-hitter, saying in his 2004 autobiography Dick Enberg: Oh My! that there’s no more dramatic sports event for a play-by-play man.

“It all builds and builds with each pitch to the ultimate climax,” he wrote. “The payoff is so enormous and unlikely that the final out is major league ecstasy.”
