The first to broadcast baseball games in New York
City on the radio and the very first television broadcaster, Red Barber
joined Mel Allen as the
first Hall of Fame inductees into the Broadcasters Wing in 1978. Barber
broadcast for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1939-53 and then for the Yankees
until fired in 1966. Know for his folksy expressions, his most famous
is "Sittin' in the catbird seat" to indicate when a team was
doing exceptionally well.
