Joe Garagiola Sr., who spent nine seasons in MLB before moving on to a storied broadcasting career, died Tuesday. He was 90. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of baseball legend and former #Dbacks broadcaster Joe Garagiola," the Arizona Diamondbacks said in a Twitter statement. Garagiola batted .257 with 42 home runs and 255 runs batted in across his nine seasons, playing for the St. Louis Cardinals, Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs and New York Giants. A St. Louis native, he joined the Cardinals' radio broadcast booth—where he truly found his calling—after retirement. Garagiola's broadcasting career spanned parts of seven decades. He spent a majority of his career calling baseball games for NBC, serving both as a play-by-play announcer and a color commentator. His work with Vin Scully carried the network throughout much of the 1980s, and the pair called multiple All-Star Games and World Series together. The two famously called Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series home run in one of the most iconic moments in MLB history.
