Rowsey Rowswell - the first "Voice of the Pirates"


While most of Roswell's early broadcasts were solo, he was joined by Pirates' co-owner Bing Crosby and eventually his successor Bob Prince for many games. 

He was famous for his unique sayings like "it's the old dipsy doodle, he swings and misses for strike three". 
and, 
"open the windows aunt Minnie, here she comes, it's a home run"  
or, 
"its' FOB folks" for full of bucks when they had the bases loaded.
