As a child, I will never forget, listening to the ball games in the 1970s with Mike Shannon and Jack Buck behind the mic, announcing and describing the Mad Hungarians' antics on the mound. Not only was he a great showman, but he was also one hell of a pitcher and competitor. there is never been anyone else like him on the mound. Also, Al gave us many great memories of himself being in the booth and has been a great ambassador for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization. For many years it would be a crying shame if he were not to be inducted into the Cardinal Hall of Fame.
