Longtime Sportscaster Dick Enberg Found Dead at Home at 82

Richard Alan Enberg (February 28, 1935 – December 21, 2017)

Retired Hall of Fame sports broadcaster Dick Enberg, who provided play-by-play for numerous sporting events on radio and television for nearly six decades, died on Thursday. He was 82. Barbara Enberg, Dick’s widow, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that she believes the cause of death was a heart attack. Enberg was known for his signature “Oh, my!” as well as his “Touch ‘em all!” home run call. More than half a century ago, Enberg received his first full-time broadcasting gig for KTLA in Los Angeles. He was an American sportscaster. He provided play-by-play for various sports on numerous radio and television networks (including NBC, CBS, and ESPN), and for individual teams, over the course of an approximately 60-year career. Enberg was well known for his signature on-air catchphrases "Touch 'em all" (for home runs) and "Oh, my!" (for particularly exciting and outstanding athletic plays). He also announced or hosted the Tournament of Roses Parade for many years, sometimes with the help of family members. Enberg retired from broadcasting in 2016. WIKIPEDIA
