Herb Score dies at 75

Sad to report that former Indians pitcher and radio voice Herb Score passed away at his home in Rocky River this morning after a lengthy illness. He was 75.

Like many of you, I grew up listening to score call the Tribe’s games. He had that soothing New York accent, and, in his later years, his mistakes were what made him so endearing. There was the famous call of, “Is it fair? Is it foul? It is!” And of course after Tony Fernandez hit the go-ahead homer in the top of the 11th inning of Game 6 of the ALCS in Baltimore in ’97, Score yelped, “And the Indians are going to the World Series! … Maybe.”

We’ll have a tribute to Score up on the site soon. In the meantime, here was the statement released by club president Paul Dolan this morning:

“Today is a sad day for the Cleveland Indians family and for Cleveland Indians fans everywhere,” team president Paul Dolan said in a written statement. “We have lost one of the greatest men in the history of our franchise. Generations of Indians fans owe their love of the Tribe to Herb Score, who was a powerful pitcher and legendary broadcaster. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and the family.”
