spent six decades in baseball, as a player and then
broadcaster. He started in the minors in 1942, and after three years
serving his country in the U.S. Marines, he moved up to the Major Leagues as a
pitcher for the Boston Braves. Ernie achieved his greatest fame calling
play-by-play of Atlanta Braves games.
Generations of fans grew up listening to the “Voice of the Braves," whether
locally on their car radios or on national television on the TBS Superstation.
Ernie's family and friends, his fans, and the Atlanta Braves
thank you for remembering him.
