|Personal Fact of Jack Buck|
Jack Buck, best known as the former voice of St. Louis Cardinals, was one of America’s most loved sportscasters. Drafted into the U.S. Army, he was awarded the Purple Cross for his distinguished service in World War II. He began his broadcasting career calling Cardinals games for KMOX radio along with Harry Caray, Milo Hamilton and Joe Garagiola and became the team’s main play-by-play caller later.
He had a great partnership which spanned nearly three decades with Mike Shannon. As a Cardinals fan, there was an extra zeal in his voice when he called That’s a winner! when the team won. But his most memorable calls were “Go crazy, folks!”, and We’ll see you tomorrow night! His calls were spontaneous, sincere and humorous.
Apart from baseball, he was a caller for many other sports. He called National Football games, and along with Hank Stram, was the radio voice of Monday Night Football. He called 16 Super Bowls and did the play-by-play for one. He was the voice of the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League. He has also covered a Stanley Cup final for radio. He was honored with many awards, including the Ford C. Frick Award and the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award.
