RIP. I will always remember him as one of the main announcers of the Saturday Game of the Week when I was a kid and playoff games as well.

Garagiola and Vin Scully were music to my ears. Joe also held his own as Johnny Carson's backup on the Tonight Show.

Joe Garagiola was awesome. Baseball is a Funny Game is one of the best books I read when I was a kid.

Always remember him on National tv for weekends. I thought he had cancer from chewing tobacco or was fighting to get rid of it in baseball...or both. RIP sir.

I read that also, loved it.

One of the stories was about a relief pitcher for a team facing the 28 Yankees I think. The starter was mowing them down, so the reliever got bored and hungry and asked a vendor for a hot dog. Just as he got it, the manager called him to get ready. "Who's up?" he asked. "Ruth, Gehrig, etc." Turned to the vendor and handed him the hot dog, "Here, hold this, I won't be long."
