Tony Pugh back you wee Reese Joseph Garagiola mean there were that there were very many of them. But this one of those early voices of Major League Baseball on television. So now I really like Joseph Garagiola. Also. In his later years. Pretty much up until the end he would go around spring training clubhouse loose and deliver lectures on the dangers of smokeless tobacco to. Again he's that you guys didn't even have time I have to get up. Cutting that out of the game so.
