1990s / Death of Don Drysdale Announced
Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale--who became an excellent broadcaster in his post-baseball-playing days--died suddenly on July 3, 1993. As part of the Los Angeles Dodgers' broadcast team, Drysdale's colleagues became alarmed when he was uncharacteristically absent for the team's game in Montreal that night. Drysdale was found dead in his hotel room. He was a few weeks shy of his 57th birthday. A coroner estimated he had been dead for about 18 hours. Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully knew about Drysdale's death but was told not to mention it on the air until Drysdale's wife had been informed. Here's how Vin Scully calmly informed the viewers back in LA about the sad situation. In contrast Scully's announcement is followed by Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken Harrelson's emotional announcement that same night.
