We remember Chuck Thompson (1921-2005)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The great Chuck Thompson was born in Massachusetts on this day in 1921.

A few years ago, I heard the news that Chuck Thompson died in Baltimore.   He was 83.  

Thompson was the Orioles radio announcer for a generation.   He also did the Colts!

Chuck was a Vince Scully kind of announcer. He had that golden voice and sounded like he was having a one on one chat with the listener.

I remember staying up all night listening to Chuck Thompson call an Orioles’ game from the West Coast. 

Or driving around on a Sunday afternoon tuned to a Yankee-Oriole September pennant race game. 

Or listening to my shortwave radio in Mexico City catching up with baseball on American Forces Radio. 

I remember Frank Robinson’s 500th home run! 

Brooks Robinson’s last home run, a game winner in ’77!

It was great. So many memories courtesy of Chuck’s wonderful voice!

It was so good that I would turn down the TV volume and listen to Chuck.  

I never met Chuck Thompson personally but he touched many of us with his baseball play by play.
