Joe Garagiola (1926-2016)

leave a comment »

Joseph Henry “Joe” Garagiola was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on this day in 1926.    

My first memory of Garagiola was when he hosted the pre-game show on NBC.   He was also on The Johnny Carson show once in a while.

Garagiola was a catcher with the Cardinals before going to the TV booth.   He was a great ambassador for the game, as well.   

He died in 2016.    

P.S.  By the way, he wrote a funny book years ago:  “Baseball is a funny game“.
