Five-time Wisconsin Sportscaster of the Year.
Major league debut: 13 April 1962.

Personal Quotes
The biggest thrill a ballplayer can have is when your son takes after you. That happened when my Bobby was in his championship Little League game. He really showed me something. Struck out three times. Made an error that lost the game. Parents were throwing things at our car and swearing at us as we drove off. Gosh, I was proud.
