My Top 10 Play-by-Play Television Broadcasters in My Lifetime

I put together this list of my 10 personal favorite play-by-play announcers.

My criteria was as follows:

First, I was born in 1976, so I do not have a true memory of broadcasters before then. The broadcaster had to at least be on TV

Second, the broadcaster had to have a national spotlight. I love a lot of local announcers, but that is a column for another day.

I tried to keep each announcer in their one sport where I thought they excelled. It was not easy.

I hope this is the start of a friendly debate and not the end of it. I would love to hear some of your favorites that I left out.

Honorable Mention to Jack Buck. Jack was a terrific announcer who has had some memorable calls in my lifetime. But, he never did the World Series on television.

I always thought Jack Buck and Hank Stram in the 1980s on the NFL on CBS were as good of a tandem as there ever was.
