||Best player he ever saw: "Willie Mays. I was lucky enough to see his debut in 1951."
Best game he ever saw: "The seventh game of the 1968 World Series. That was the championship game of the last real pennant race."
One event he regrets not broadcasting: "The Rose Bowl. I did a lot of football in those days, more than baseball. But I never really got into that network rotation."
Game he most would have liked to broadcast: "Don Larsen's perfect game. I've never done a perfect game."
Favorite stadium: "Tiger Stadium and Ebbetts Field because that's where I was my first year. Of the current ones, I like (Safeco Field)."
Best thing that has happened to baseball: "I would say the new ballparks. The improvement in the seating and experience for the fans."
Worst thing: "The disharmony between the players and owners and all the negative attention that attracts.''
On the difficulty of being on the road so much for 55 years: "I've had a very supportive and loyal wife all these years. She understood my career when we got married 61 years ago."
How many hot dogs has he eaten in his career: "I don't eat hot dogs. I like them, but if I ate them I'd weigh 600 pounds."
