Jerry Coleman, legendary baseball player and announcer – and combat Marine Corps pilot – passed away this week. For all of those who watched him and heard his voice, his passing brings sadness and a sense that we have lost an old friend. Here are two tributes to him – one a video and one an article – that tell some of his story.
Those of us who ever heard him announce will remember his two catch phrases:
“You can hang a star on that one!”
Well Colonel, you can hang a star on your life, service, and career. Rest well and Semper Fidelis.
