John Francis Buck joined Harry Caray in 1954 to
announce St. Louis Cardinals baseball games. Their fourteen-year partnership has been
called the greatest broadcast team in baseball history. Buck went on to become the anchor
of the Cardinals broadcast team and sports director of KMOX radio. Capping each Redbird
victory with a cry of "That's a winner," Buck's wit, precision and enthusiasm
earned him CBS-TV's top play-by-play spot. Also an experienced football commentator, he
announced eight Super Bowls. In 1987 Jack Buck was inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame.
Carole Buck, Jack's wife, accepted the award on behalf of Mr. Buck.
