The Baseball Hall of Fame broadcasters are a group I greatly admire.

Growing up in Northern California, I was raised on the voices of the San Francisco Giants, Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons. At night, I could  tune in to the amazing Vin Scully from Los Angeles.

Since my parents both had Missouri roots, on vacations to their childhood homes, I could listen to the compelling St. Louis Cardinals announcers, Harry Caray and Jack Buck.

I am certain that Hall of Famers like Vinny, Harry, Jack, Russ and Lon inspired me to get interested in baseball announcing.

This series pays tribute to these all-time greats, with Harry Caray and Jack Buck as my first two efforts. These CDs include many of my favorite things: Baseball, Broadcasting, History, Highlights, Humor, Storytelling, Vocabulary and Music. While each CD required an enormous amount of work, it was truly a labor of love.

I produce each one with the intention of having the listener enjoy the recording over and over. For example, if you were a Jack Buck fan, I want you to enjoy his memorable calls of “Go crazy, folks - Go crazy!” and “I don’t believe what I just saw” again and again . . .and I want you to smile fondly as you hear his humorous speeches or his visit with Ron Santo and me in the Chicago Cubs WGN radio booth in 2001.

I loved these guys, and if you did, too, I want you to be able to listen to them and enjoy them - forever!

Thank you for visiting this site, and watch for new additions of broadcasters as they arrive here. We are working on a notification process for you and will announce it at a later date.

Thanks again!

Best wishes,
Pat Hughes
