It has been reported that Skip Carey, longtime baseball announcer, son of Harey, father of Chip, passed away in his sleep Sunday morning. The cause of death was not immediately known, but various health problems had limited Caray to calling only Braves home games this season.
While his father was known for his declarations of “Holy Cow,” Skip Caray was able to declare “Braves Win! Braves Win!” with regularity as the team won 14 consecutive division titles beginning in 1991 and the 1995 World Series.
“Our baseball community has lost a legend today,” Braves president John Schuerholz said. “The Braves family and Braves fans everywhere will sadly miss him. Our thoughts are with his wife Paula and his children.”
Caray is survived by his wife and four children.
