Jan. 16 something unusual happens. Caray is in Miami, yet there are no expenses, just one enigmatic word, “Super.”
I saw Harry Caray once at P.J. Clarke's in Manhattan at lunchtime; the Cubs-Mets game scheduled for that afternoon had been rained out. He was already drinking.
Batman - Naw, if you want urban legends that are possibly slanderous, here's one: After Harry left the Cardinals, there was a rumor for a while that the reason he had left was that Gussie Busch had fired him after he got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time with Gussie's wife. Now, THERE"S a slanderous urban legend. True? No idea. - Brock Hanke
Harry thought John Kruk's last name was "Krux" for a long time.
Now we need an article about how Hawk Harrelson steals children's bicycles and harasses puppies on his way to the game.
the definitive harry 'name pronunciation' was hector villanueva, the chubby catcher/first baseman
Caray cut a deal pegged to ballpark attendance, which doubled, largely thanks to his flamboyant presence.
Vin Scully is great, but he never expresses as much love for the game as Harry did - he's too professional for that. As a companion to watch a ballgame with, there's never been anyone better than Harry Caray.

harry caray in 1984 was one of the best announcer seasons of recent times. the team was good, the crowds were great, it was a great summer weatherwise, harry was still pretty much at the top of his game and the booze was under control.
