American sportscaster

Harry Caray changed the world of sports broadcasting forever with a style that reflected his true love of baseball. Caray was a man who spoke his mind. It is this aspect of his personality that endeared him to most, but ostracized him from others. There were many sportscasters who dreaded working with him, because he took over the booth. He was certainly larger than life, and had the life to prove it. He impressed many with his personalized broadcasting style and brought a whole new dimension to the game of baseball. Most say he brought baseball to life.
