Milo Hamilton, R.I.P.
by

Former MLB TV and radio broadcaster Milo Hamilton has passed away at the age of 88.

Hamilton spent six decades in the broadcast booth for seven different teams beginning with the St. Louis Browns in 1953. He would also call games for the crosstown rival Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs & White Sox, the Milwaukee & Atlanta Braves, the Pittsburgh Pirates before landing with the Houston Astros in 1984. Hamilton would find a home in Houston and broadcast with the team until his retirement after the 2012 season. He would be bestowed with the Ford C. Frick Award in 1992. His death comes 12 days after the passing of original Astros broadcaster Gene Elston.

But Hamilton is best remembered for his stint with the Braves and for good reason. On April 8, 1974, Hamilton called Hank Aaron’s 715th career home run.
