RIP Andy Musser 

Post#1 » by Slats » Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:04 am ... 29938.html

Andy Musser, a sports announcer for 45 years and Phillies broadcaster for more than a quarter-century, died Sunday. He was 74.

Musser's son, Allan, of Roswell, Ga., said his father died Sunday evening at his home in Wynnewood, Pa.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andy’s family, especially his wife Eun Joo, his son Allan and his daughter Luanne," said Phillies President David Montgomery.

"Andy was a dear friend to many, an absolute gentleman, and a true professional. I had the pleasure of working with him for 26 years during which time he made a significant contribution to our club. Additionally, along with thousands of Philadelphia sports fans, I admired his versatility in announcing not only Phillies games but also his work with the Eagles, Sixers and Villanova Basketball. Since leaving the Phillies broadcast booth in 2001, Andy remained close to the club. We will all miss our dear friend."
