Martin Hamilton-Smith the first to jump the sinking ship. More to come.
same here. Harry, Vin, Whitey, Harwell, Jack Buck and Milo Hamilton are the greatest.
My life is being dismantled. This one guy thinks that Milo Hamilton wasn't good. And another guy said radio broadcasting was a petty topic.
It needs to be documented that just said that Milo Hamilton was not a good broadcaster.
Similar for me when I watch Hank Aaron's 715th home run and Milo Hamilton is calling it.

40 Years Ago TODAY. Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's Homerun Record hitting 715. One of the Greatest Sports calls of ALL TIME was made by my friend Milo Hamilton. ~ Rod
just watched 715 with the great Milo Hamilton calling the at bat. Nothing like history
I'm listening to a Milo Hamilton flashback in my mind.
Forty years ago tonight! "There's a hew Home Run Champion of all time, and it's Henry Aaron" - Milo Hamilton
Two of the classiest people in baseball. Henry Aaron's 715th home run as called by Vin Scully.
Remembering watch Hanks homer. It will give you chills.
"There's a new Home Run Champion of All Time and his name is Henry Aaron!!" Thank you Milo Hamilton for one of most iconic calls
Never get tired of hearing Milo Hamilton's call of Hank Aaron's 715th.
Ever wanted to hear Vin Scully call Hank Aaron’s 715th home run? You’re in luck:
I remember where I was 40 years ago tonight. I was a 12 year old boy listening to Milo Hamilton and Ernie Johnson call Hank Aaron's shot over the left field fence. That home run was that broke Babe Ruth's record. Kevin Hogencamp and myself relived that moment many times in our backyards. It was written, "throwing a fastball by Hank Aaron was like sneaking the sun by a rooster." A class act is Hammering Hank Aaron!
I can't help but smile every time I hear Milo Hamilton's call of Go Braves!
I stand corrected Hank hit 715 on this date. Keep me on track sports fans and family!?? Do u remover the call by Milo Hamilton
"Move over Babe, we have a new home run king, and his name is Henry Aaron" as spoken by Milo Hamilton that April night many years ago. Congrats to Mr. Aaron for the memories and class he exhibited during the home run record chase.
They're a study in contrasts, but both masterpieces in their own right. The radio broadcast calls of Hank Aaron's 715th home run by the Braves Milo Hamilton (short and sweet) and the Dodgers Vin Scully (eloquent and elegant). On the 40th anniversary of that Monday night, enjoy:
As Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run sailed over the wall at Atlanta- Fulton County Stadium 40 years ago today, veteran broadcaster Milo Hamilton made a call for the ages and forever became linked to the man that would become known as baseball's Home Run King.
Today is the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th home run, which broke the record of Babe Ruth set over 50 years prior. Aaron received scores of death threats and hate mail as he neared Ruth's record. Throughout the chase, Aaron maintained a calmness and grace that belied the worry and anxiety he was feeling. Aaron persevered and finally hit 715 on April 8, 1974, at Fulton County Stadium, on a 1-0 fastball from Dodgers' pitcher Al Downing. Attached is the audio from the three broadcasters at the game: Curt Gowdy with NBC, Milo Hamilton with the Braves, and Vin Scully with the Dodgers. Pay close attention to Hamilton's and Scully's calls.

Laptop insurance - because accidents happen!
40th anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th home run. I can still hear in my imagination Milo Hamilton's call. Three men have reached 714 HRs(and beyond) and two were wearing a braves uniform at the time
The three Hank Aaron 715 calls: Vin Scully, Curt Gowdy, and Milo Hamilton. Would not have guessed Hamilton's ends up most famous.
Filling in for Kelly Marlowe on Town Talk (7:30-9:00 am) tomorrow (Tuesday) on a special day. We'll celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th homerun, surpassing Babe Ruth. Call in and let us know where you were at 8:10 pm (Central) on April 8, 1974. Looking forward to playing Milo Hamilton and Vin Scully's calls of that historic moment.

Had dinner at sat next to Milo Hamilton and talked to him a little bit! will appreciate this!
So just glanced at the TV and asked why was doing a TV game with Milo Hamilton. (It was the Rose Bowl
On This Day ( December 15) 1893- Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No 9 in E minor, Op 95," From the New World", was rehearsed before the public at New York's Carnegie Hall.( The Official world premiere was held the next day.) 1979-Milo Hamilton was chosen as the Pirates's play by play radio announcer, replacing Bob Prince. 2001- The Leaning Tower Of Pisa, Italy was re-opened to the public after a $ 27 million realignment that had dragged on for over a decade.
From Bob Gibson via Bill Mozer... December 15th... "Captain Midnight," which enjoyed an 11-year run on radio, mostly on Mutual, aired its last episode on this date in 1949. The TV version of the program, starring Richard Webb, debuted in September of '54 on CBS and ran until January of '56. The syndicated version launched in 1958. Talk about the king-sized success of a folk hero...and in this case everybody knew the theme song for Davy Crockett which premiered on ABC's Disneyland on this date in 1954. It was a five-part miniseries starring Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen that ran until December of the following year, and suddenly coonskin caps became the rage! For all the true-blue fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates it was a bolt out of the blue when Bob Prince, who'd been calling Bucs games for 28 seasons was fired with his partner Nellie King on this date in 1975. Prince was succeeded by Milo Hamilton who had previously been the voice of the Atlanta Braves and during their home opener in 1974 was at the mic fo ...
I’m old enough to remember Milo Hamilton. But, yeah, the Braves had some great radio talent…
The Milo Hamilton bobble head doll in my office confirms this is indeed too nice of a day to be inside.
Milo & Hamilton send meows and trunks up in support of today's ivory crush. Thank you
way to rub it in our faces Milo Hamilton lol we can't watch the game and no signal at night on 790
These two hope you are having fun being kind to everyone who passes you by today.
SABR Milo’s Memories: When the Braves Came to Atlanta By Milo Hamilton, as told to Dan Schlossberg This article was published in the 2010 The National Pastime. COLLABORATOR’S NOTE: Between his big-league broadcasting debut with the 1953 St. Louis Browns and his current work as the radio voice of the Houston Astros, Milo Hamilton worked for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, and Pittsburgh Pirates. He came to Atlanta with the Braves in 1966 and stayed for ten seasons. What follows are his memories of that first year in Dixie. I will never forget the response the Braves received when they moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta. It was great. Before the Opening Day parade, the team had a caravan that went through Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Alabama. I went along as the new broadcaster and remember the unbelievable welcome. It wasn’t that the folks didn’t know baseball; the Atlanta *** had a very rich heritage for many years under Earl Mann. And the Birmingham Barons weren’t f ...

hosting awesome event at MMP all day. Milo Hamilton emceed special ceremony this morning.
As a very proud native Houstonian, I want to express my utter disappointment in the citizens of Harris County and their failure to save the Astrodome. My father help build that incredible structure. I sat in the Gold-Level seats to cheer on my beloved Astros; watched many rodeos, attended concerts and interviewed Yogi Berra in the Dome. I met my idols Milo Hamilton and Gene Elston within those hallowed walls. Now, it's fate is all but sealed. Some things are worth saving folks - this was one of them!
Milo Hamilton was on the radio this morning. His voice brings back a flood of memories from my child hood. Listening to the Astros with my dad... GO STROS!
For those of u joining us for the 2013 Houston Buddy Walk get ready for a morning of fun! Here are some tips to help you get through that day: Parking: You can park for free at MMP’s lots A, B, C & D. Sometimes on the street too. Remember that we have some streets closed and there is also construction around that area. Also bring cash in case you end up parking in a private lot. Entrance: make sure you enter the Diamond Lot through the Right Field so you can get the “Welcome Experience”. Restrooms: these are located inside the Minute Maid Park—just go through the right field, past the playground. We will also have some portables in the corner of Texas and Milo Hamilton. What to do before the walk: visit our vendors, get some samples and information from them. Have the kids go on the rides and you can also bring your lawn chair and get a great seat in front of the stage. Visit the basket drawing area, the ITP Tent the gift shop and buy some delicious food! Although some of our vendors accept credit ...

Please take positive action by NOT buying from halal takeaways and being more careful what Brands you buy in your weekly shop - & where you shop Check out our Photo Albums for information of what to avoid. It is pointless arguing with muslims - they are brainwashed - we need to hit them where it hurts - in the wallet. Do your utmost to refuse to buy halal products & services. Many ordinary companies have been duped into regularly paying halal authorities and getting involved with this halal certification Racket – we must stop buying their products so that they see our boycott in action and see their Sales fall. Only then will these halal compliant companies learn that the cost of Islamification of the West... as well as abandoning all civilized rules for agriculture & animal husbandry, is the loss of business from civilized societies.

Vin Scully is simply the best in the business.
Dropped pop-up jeopardizes the game and broadcaster's health, but fans will remember it
Milo Hamilton,who broadcasted Hank Aaron's 715th homer on April 8th,1974,was the lead announcer for the Braves and the Astros.He broadcasted Cardinal baseball for one year,with Harry Caray in 1953,before the arrival of Jack Buck.He and Harry were reunited in the WGN booth in the 1980s,as they did Cubs' baseball.The two were not friends.In fact,they were pretty damned close to being enemies.Hamilton derisively referred to Harry as "the Canary" in his book,and often said,"Harry felt that he was bigger than the game."Milo made nasty,inappropriate comments after Harry's death.That,naturally,drew the ire of son Skip and grandson Chip.
I love the Braves! I have a large HD tv in my office/man cave, but sitting outside looking at the pond and listening on the radio of the braves game is the best! Reminds me of the good old days of 750am and the Braves!
Thanks so much for the donations of cups and soup mix that were donated or given to help Vance and I give the people less fortunate out on the cold streets each night something warm.

Outside listening to the Pirates on the radio. That's how I remember it. Outside, under a shade tree with my dad and a transistor radio . With the "Gunner" Bob Prince and Nellie King announcing on KDKA, way before all the games were on TV.
Ohh yeahhh. It was a quiet stadium. A lot of oohs n ahs when ElToro smacked one, Marte gunned one, Cutch bombed one, and Gabby clanked one!!! It was classic!!

In 1997, my family and I were on a East Coast trip. My hubby asked me to check our route to see if there were some sights that I thought we should put on our list to see. I saw Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame), and having three sons playing baseball and me being a huge follower of the game - this was a must see. One of the highlights on that excursion to Cooperstown was going to the area that had the announcers that had been inducted. There with all the greats was Milo Hamilton - and the audio from when he announced Hank Aaron's 715th record-breaking homerun. This was a thrill for me to hear, and I will miss his voice on the radio for Astro's games. Happy retirement, Milo.
Tonight we celebrate and honor Milo Hamilton at the at Minute Maid Park. Here he is making his entrance

Milo Hamilton, one of the great broadcasters in baseball, called his last game for the Houston Astros last night, culminating a 67-year career in baseball.
Thanks go out to everyone that has put up and supported me this week!! It was a fun experience being here in Texas. I've been here competing for a highly publicised position with the Houston Astros. It's a long shot to get this job considering the competition, but I'm leaving this city on the positive no matter what the result. After all, I had the opportunity to perform in the last National League game in Houston. I stood up and honored Milo Hamilton, the legendary broadcaster, as he made his final call in professional baseball. I got to walk next door to see BBVA Compass Stadium, the new home of the Houston Dynamo. It made me excited about what's to come at our new stadium in the Bay I watched my former teammates from the Lancaster JetHawks, Brandon Barnes, Jason Castro, and Jose Altuve play including an Altuve home run and declaration of Jose Altuve Day by the City of Houston. I also got to see the current Lancaster JetHawks presented with their Minor League Championship. I, very respectfully, had th ...
Enough with the blubbering goodbyes to Milo Hamilton. The Astros' third worst personnel move (behind trading Joe Morgan and driving Nolan Ryan away, though I suspect that moving to the American League will prove to have trumped them all - probably by the end of the first homestand of 2013) was dumping Gene Elston in favor of Milo 'I sound like I'm doing a commercial pitch even if I'm just reading the alphabet' Hamilton. No love lost here. Good riddance. If Elston is up to it, bring him back.

Congratulations broadcaster Milo Hamilton on a Hall of Fame baseball broadcasting career that began in the Quad Cities!
Some good news from the baseball world. The Houston Astros have just defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-0. I'm glad to see my favorite team beat "The Dirty Birds", which is a nickname I gave them back in the not-so-long-ago when the Houston Astros were actually a good team. As I understand it, this was Houston's final home game of the season. Next year, Houston shall be in the American League. (Sigh!) :( Lastly, it was the final Houston Astros game broadcasted by Milo Hamilton. Even if Houston had done its usual and lost to the Dirty Birds again, that in itself would be worth mentioning because I CAN'T STAND MILO HAMILTON!!!
And now it's time to says thanks to Milo Hamilton. Maybe the second best baseball announcer, outside of Jack Buck of course :) one last time, "Holy Toledo!" what a career. Best of luck Milo.

wonders if Milo Hamilton knows he is a broadcaster for a radio audience. I don't know if "Holy Toledo!" means home run, double play, strikeout or maybe there's a streaker on the field. We can't see the game, Milo. That's what we need you for.
Tonight, I have enjoyed just staying home and eating french bread pizza, cereal , a few snacks, and actually watching a baseball game that did not include my Braves . I am old school. I would rather listen to my boys on the radio, and dvr the Braves on tv, and watch them whenever. I am still working on watching May's games, but no hurry. Man, I miss the old days, with Milo Hamilton and Ernie Johnson on the Braves radio, and then later on, Pete, Ernie, and Skip on the radio . I still have Skip Carey's last radio broadcast before he died. Do any of you old timers remember Milo and Ernie ? I remember Dale Murphy homering twice in a game back in the late 80's, and Ernie called them both on the radio. And, when I go to a game, I always take my radio, and always keep score. Old school !!! But, tonight, it's the Subway series, Yankees and Mets . Go Yankees !

Finally, after almost 2 years of searching, I found a station on which I can hear the voice of Hall of Fame broadcaster Milo Hamilton calling Astros baseball games! I was beginning to worry that I'd never get to hear him again, since he's retiring after this year. Go Milo! And Go Stros!

Do either of you guys happen to know how the whole Milo Hamilton "Blue Star" concept got started?
When Fred Hutchinson kept Stan Musial on the bench,in hopes that Stan would deliver hit in St.Louis,Commissioner Ford Frick's office said nothing.When Henry Aaron was chasing Babe Ruth's home run record of 714,the Braves opened the 1974 season at Cincinnati,and Hammerin' Hank needed two to pass Ruth.Commissioner Bowie Kuhn told Henry in no uncertain terms that he had to play.Aaron greeted Jack Billingham with 714,but,hit 715 before the Atlanta faithful and a national television audience on April 4th.Milo Hamilton in the Braves' broadcast booth,Vin Scully calling the game for the Dodgers,and Curt Gowdy on NBC.
This is the last year that Milo Hamilton will be the voice of the Astros, as he will retire. He's been the broadcast voice of the Pirates, Cubs, Braves, White Sox, Astros, and for one unbelievable year he shared the broadcast booth in St Louis with Harry Caray and Jack Buck! All three Hall of Fame voices working for the same team! Best known for his call of Hank Aaron's 715th home run in Atlanta and his trade mark phrase "Holy Toledo". One of the last unique and recognizable voices from the golden age of baseball. Vin Scully's still out there, but we'll miss you Milo!!!

It's funny Chip Caray mentioned Milo Hamilton, what he didn't mention is the fact Milo has held a grudge against...
Right. So it's hard to explain the odd feeling when you open the door to the ladies room at the ballpark and hear a man's voice come booming out at you. It took several shocked seconds to recognize the voice as Milo Hamilton, and then a few more seconds to realize they had turned up the PA and it was only the broadcast.
Awesome. Milo Hamilton just admitted Vin Scully changed his phone number without telling him his new number.

Some people love Milo Hamilton, and some hate him. Hate might be a little strong, but the "dislike" many have are related to his active involvement in pushing out an Astro announcing favorite Gene Elston. Milo has announced that this is his last season, and he will retire. With spring weather abounding , peanuts being roasted, and fans of all ages get ready for the magic of "Opening Day", and the sound of "play ball!", we wish you well Milo in your final season behind the mike. "Holy Toledo", I wish the Astros weren't in a rebuilding season and destined for the cellar again. But right now they are in first place, ...and hope is in the air!
