Remembering Bob Wolff

Bob Wolff passed away last night at the age of 96. Throughout an inspiring 79-year career, it seemed that Mr. Wolff was the voice of every major sporting event. In fact, he is the only broadcaster to work a championship in all four major sports. Highlighted by his coverage of the Don Larsen's historic 1956 World Series perfect game, to the "Greatest Game Ever Played" between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants in 1958, he was an icon.

Of all these prolific events, it was Larsen's perfect game that he said meant the most to him. In a conversation hosted by Steiner Sports at The New York Times Center featuring Wolff, Larsen, Yogi Berra and Brandon Steiner, he discussed his favorite broadcasts, which included calling Jackie Robinson's final Major League hit.

This humorous and memorable video helps remind us that, despite his passing, he left us with many memories and a polished career that changed the sports media industry. 

Wolff is a member of the 1995 National Baseball Hall of Fame class and is also an honoree at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, one of only two men to receive both honors.
