In memoriam: Merle Harmon

The former Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster passed away yesterday at the age of 82.
Merle Harmon, who worked Milwaukee Brewers game broadcasts from the team’s 1970 inaugural season through 1979, passed away yesterday. He was 82.

"Merle was a great friend and a wonderful partner in the booth, and the memories he leaves us with will be cherished forever," said former broadcast partner Bob Uecker. "His dedication to family and broadcasting were second to none, and I will always be grateful for the latitude and direction he gave to me as I was entering the profession. My heart goes out to his family, and I speak for everyone at the Brewers in saying that this is a very sad day for all of us."
