Commissioner's Statement Regarding the Passing of Dick Enberg

By  | 

“Dick Enberg was first and foremost a true gentleman, one who just happened to be among the most distinguished sports broadcasters in history. He was well-known for bringing many different sports into the homes of fans, but he had a special bond with the National Pastime. Those of us in Baseball are grateful for his impact on the Angels, the Padres, the Tigers, and his national playoff coverage. I was fortunate to get to know Dick during our 2016 All-Star Week in San Diego, where he participated in the pregame ceremony, a year after he was honored in Cooperstown.
“On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest condolences to his wife Barbara, their family, and the many admirers he earned throughout a magnificent broadcasting career."
