Happy Baseball Birthday....Charlie Steiner

Today we say Happy Baseball Birthday! to longtine ESPN broadcaster and current Los Angeles Dodgers play by play announcer Charlie Steiner.

Charles Harris Steiner was born on July 17, 1949, in Malverne, New York.

Charlie graduated from Bradley University in 1971, and earlier this year Bradley dedicated the Charlie Steiner School of Sports Communications in honor of their famous graduate.

Steiner is a terrific baseball announcer, and at times when the Dodgers are on the road on the West Coast I enjoy listening to him call ballgames as I relax before going to sleep.

Charlie was on ESPN for 14 years, and was an awesome Sports Center host.

Charlie was also the #1 boxing guy at ESPN, and covered almost anything that ESPN put on television or broadcast on the radio, including baseball.

The Y2K Sports Center commercial is still the funniest thing ever.

After ESPN Charlie went to New York to broadcast games for the Yankees before moving on to Los Angeles and Dodgers baseball.

Charlie's partners on Dodgers games are Orel Hershiser, Nomar Garciapara and Rick Monday.

In 2013 Charlie Steiner became the 17th sportscaster in the National Radio Hall of Fame.

Happy Baseball Birthday! Charlie! 

Play Ball!
