Herb Carneal

Herb Carneal (May 10 1923 – April 1 2007) was an American Major League Baseball sportscaster. From 1962 through 2006, he was a play-by-play voice of Minnesota Twins radio broadcasts, becoming the lead announcer in 1967 after Ray Scott left to work exclusively with CBS. His mellow baritone voice and laid-back demeanor were well-loved by Twins fans. His enduring nickname was "The Voice of the Twins". Carneal's trademark greeting, "Hi everybody," was reminiscent of his down-home style.

A Richmond, Virginia native, Carneal first broadcast major league games for the Philadelphia Athletics and Philadelphia Phillies in 1954. From 1957 to 1961 he was employed by the Baltimore Orioles.

His announcing career received a significant boost when he took over the Twins broadcasts, as it united him with legendary broadcaster Halsey Hall, after whom many major league broadcasters have modeled their work. Hall's influence on Carneal's career development is legendary.

Carneal received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996, and was inducted into the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting's Hall of Fame in 2004.

Beginning in 2002, Carneal scaled back his workload to providing play-by-play for half of Minnesota's home games. By 2007, he was scheduled to work only 36 games. Until 2007, Carneal worked in partnership with fellow radio commentators John Gordon and Dan Gladden.

Herb Carneal died on April 1 2007 of congestive heart failure.
