Braves announcer Skip Caray dies

Skip Caray made the call when the Atlanta Braves won the World Series in 1995: "Yes! Yes! Yes! The Atlanta Braves have given you a championship! Listen to this crowd!"

He made the call when Sid Bream scored on Francisco Cabrera's pinch-hit to win the National League Championship Series for the Braves in 1992: "Here comes Bream! Here's the throw to the plate! He iiiiiiiisssssssss ... safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! ... Braves win!"

Oldest son Chip, who rejoined the Braves broadcast lineup in 2005, often working with the man he called 'my dad and my hero.' Skip Caray, who was in his 33rd year calling games for the Braves died Sunday.
