Baseball broadcaster Warner Fusselle passed away of a heart attack on Sunday. He was 68.
I remember Fusselle from his days with Mel Allen on This Week in Baseball. Fusselle generally did the TWIB notes in the middle of the show but as Allen’s health declined in later years would occasionally host the show himself. Fusselle’s southern upbringing made his broadcasting style similar to the likes of Allen, Ernie Harwell and Red Barber.
Since 2001, Fusselle served as the play-by-play announcer for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the short season Single-A affiliate of the New York Mets. Fusselle would have begun his 12th season with the Cyclones next Monday. Prior to his time with the Cyclones, Fusselle did the play by play for the Richmond Braves and the Spartanburg Phillies and also covered basketball games for the Viriginia Squires of the ABA.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
