    I think the Cubs honored Harry Carey with a statue before he died and I think the Cardinals did something for Jack Buck before he died. I want to say it was a statue but I'm not sure.

    If you're going to honor a broadcaster that is getting up in years, it's best to do it while they are still alive. Guys like Buck and Carey were still active when they passed away. I wonder if the Dodgers have done something similar to honor Vin Scully?

    I think the Reds Hall of Fame Museum has recordings of Waite doing the 61 World Series.

    Anyone ever see that long series channel 48 did with Waite Hoyt back in the 80s? They've shown it a couple of times in the last few years. They also did a shorter one with Nuxhall, too. I wonder if they'll do one with Marty.

    Yeah. I taped a bunch of them. Not many of them were Reds related, though.

    But it was good to hear some of those stories.

    Oh yeah, but if you're looking to hear stories about his announcing days with the Reds, you aren't going to hear many, if any on there.

    But if I remember correctly, that was pretty much similar to the stories he would tell during rain delays.
