Joe Garagiola Sr. To Announce His Retirement From Broadcasting
Published February 20, 2013
Broadcaster Joe Garagiola Sr. today during a press conference at Salt River Fields "plans to announce his retirement after 58 seasons in the booth," the last 15 with the D'Backs. Garagiola has appeared on select D'Backs TV broadcasts "since joining the team at its inception" in '98. His final broadcast was the Sept. 30 Cubs-D'Backs game. Garagiola, who was elected into the broadcast wing of the Baseball HOF in '91, worked with broadcaster Vin Scully from '83-88 calling NBC's "Game of the Week" Saturday broadcasts (FOXSSPORTSARIZONA.com, 2/19).
Garagiola's other notable broadcast roles during his career include stints as co-host of NBC's "Today" and the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show telecast (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 2/20).
