Legendary sportscaster Bob Wolff died at his home in NY on Saturday night, his family announced.
He was inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and won the 1995 Ford C. Frick Award, which is given annually to a broadcaster for "major contributions to baseball". His career has spanned so many different avenues, that Wolff held the distinction of getting to have interviewed Babe Ruth.
He got his start in the business in 1939 as a student broadcaster at Duke University.
The genial Wolff called the Knicks games when they won their National Basketball Association titles in 1969-70 and 1972-73, working alongside analyst Cal Ramsey, and did games for the NHL's New York Rangers as well.
Wolff also did the World Series on television in 1958 and 1961 and called the Stanley Cup Final, so he was the rare broadcaster to work the title games in all four major US sports.
Until early this year, Wolff provided sports commentary for Long Island-based News 12, beginning that gig when the cable station launched in 1986.
Wolff interviews Babe Ruth
His most famous call of all was for Yankees pitcher Don Larsen's ideal game in the 1956 World Series.
Wolff remained the play-by-play announcer for the Senators until 1960 when the franchise moved to Minnesota to become the Twins. "Beyond his lifetime of professional accomplishments, he was a man of great grace and dignity, serving his country with honor, and proudly calling NY home".
The broadcaster, who called games for almost 80 years, has been the voice of a number of legendary sporting events. "Bob was a dear friend of the Yankees organization and he will be deeply missed". With a career that spanned almost 80 years, Wolff had been the longest-running broadcaster in radio and television history. "His legacy will live forever".
Wolff served in the U.S. Navy as a supply officer in the Pacific during World War II.
He is survived by his wife, Jane Hoy; his sons, Rick and Robert; daughter, Margy Clark; nine grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
