Skip Caray passes away

Skip Caray, son of Harry Caray, passed away this past Saturday. Everybody knew Harry Caray because of the Cubs on WGN. Skip was the announcer for the Braves and while many thought he got the job because of his Dad, he was a great announcer in his own right. The Greensboro Connection is Skip’s son Chip, who is also a baseball announcer; but worked here as the weekend Sports Anchor at WFMY.

Chip Caray is remembered because WFMY’s Mike Hogwood would not give him a day off to attend his Grandfather’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Our thoughts go out to the Caray family.
