Twins announcer dies
Herb Carneal, who began broadcasting for the Twins baseball team in 1962, died Sunday. He died of congestive heart failure at his home in Minnetonka, the team announced. He received the highest honor in baseball broadcasting in 1996 when he was named the recipient of the Ford C. Frick award. The tribune did a lot more coverage on this story where the pioneer press did more of a short obituary.
