Curtis Edward Gowdy

I didn’t grow up in the New England area nor was a big baseball fan when I was a child, so I don’t associate Curt Gowdy with the Red Sox. Instead, when I hear his warm, open voice I think of the football games I so devoutly followed as a child.

Gowdy died on February 20th at the age of 86. For decades he crisply relayed on-field feats to his enrapt audiences. My favorite memory of Gowdy is of him narrating a special on the 2004 Red Sox. Unlike the NESN and MLB offerings, I haven’t seen this program available on DVD. I believe it was only show on the Boston-area Fox affiliate. His voice was somewhat weathered with age, but I could hear the joy in his voice during his recounting of that splendid season. Rest in peace, Mr. Gowdy. I’m glad you could see the Red Sox take it all before you left.
