bummer; Coleman was one of the all-time greats. We're going to be losing more of them, soon: Vin Scully doesn't have much time left, nor do Ralph Kiner or Milo Hamilton.
I came to "know" him while we lived in San Diego. Great announcer. If I remember correctly he took a lot of heat for critiqing the Padres when they made boneheaded moves. (trading Ozzie, etc).
