First game I can remember that Carl Grapentine wasn't behind the stadium mic for the MMB. A friend in the press box told me he has a non-life threatening illness that prevented him from traveling from Chicago this week. Hope he makes a speedy and full recovery and is back where he belongs for Wisconsin. He added to his duties as the MMB announcer when he took over the play-by-play announcing for Howard King several years ago.
If the play-by-play voice sounded familiar to you today, it was Bobb Vergiels who is the PA announcer for the Detroit Tigers. Kept waiting for him to announce that Curtis Granderson was taking over in centerfield.
