Flashback: Boomer & Carton Get Visit From Broadcasting Legend Bob Wolff

Flashback: Boomer & Carton Get Visit From Broadcasting Legend Bob Wolff

Hall of Fame sportscaster Bob Wolff, considered one of the most iconic and decorated play-by-play men in history, died Saturday at his home in NY.

Most recently, Wolff was a commentator for News 12 Long Island from 1986 through this February.

His career lasted 78 years, including 26 years as the play-by-play voice of Madison Square Garden.

Wolff also did the World Series on television in 1958 and 1961 and called the Stanley Cup Final, so he was the rare broadcaster to work the title games in all four major US sports. His professional work spanned nine decades and a lifetime of legendary calls, which included Don Larsen's flawless game in the 1956 World Series and the Knicks' only two NBA Championships in 1970 and 1973.

Still, given just how much people adore the original film, the filmmaker has already made his peace with potentially failing. Ever since the first Blade Runner , the big question about Ford's character has been whether or not he too is a replicant.


Having come to Duke to play baseball for coach Jack Coombs, Wolff injured his ankle as a sophomore and instead joined the broadcast team as a student in 1939.

"Bob was a dear friend of the Yankees organization and he will be deeply missed".

"Bob Wolff was not only one of the seminal figures in American sportscasting, but he was a part of the very fabric of Madison Square Garden, the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers for more than six decades", Madison Square Garden and MSG Networks said in a statement.

A year later, he started doing play-by-play for the Washington Senators. "His legacy will live forever".

A 1942 Duke graduate, Wolff's career took him from Durham to Washington, D.C., with an interruption for World War II when he was a U.S. Navy supply officer in the Pacific.

His national broadcasting work load famously included radio calls of Don Larsen's ideal game for the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series and the Colts' overtime victory over the Giants in the 1958 NFL Championship Game.

He is survived by his wife, Jane Hoy; his sons, Rick and Robert; daughter, Margy Clark; nine grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
