I did football for 25 years and basketball for over 40 years, but Baseball was the greatest game in the world when I started & and it still is today

Never been a Milo Hamilton fan in the least.

I went to the Home Run Derby when Houston hosted the All-Star game a few years back. Hamilton cracked me up by continually mispronouncing Miguel Tejada's name. Kept calling him Miguel Taheyda.
Been around the game for a long time, going to have big shoes to fill.

I am encountering your exact sentiments with many of my Baseball friends. I am neither a fan nor loathe him.

That is still a great quote . . . ;)

always thought he was a pretty good announcer. One of those distinctive voices that give a team play by play guy some character.

He has a good voice for baseball...and had a great career.....

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version
