He first entered the homes of many around the region in 1974 as Al Michaels’ replacement. Throughout his Hall of Fame career Brennaman called Pete Rose’s record-breaking 4,192nd career hit, Hank Aaron’s record-tying 714th home run and three World Series victories. He also worked 11 Final Fours and the infamous Kentucky-Duke 1992 Regional Final. You’ve heard his iconic voice on Kentucky Sports Radio a few times too.
The Commonwealth salutes Brennaman for 46 years of service. Reds baseball will not be the same without him.
