Herb Carneal Dies

Twins announcer Herb Carneal died Sunday at the age of 83 from heart failure, according to reports in the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press via the Associated Press. Carneal started announcing for the Twins in 1962, the team's second season ever. As he aged, he cut back some of his duties of announcing, and at the last minute had declined to announce for the Twin's home opener Monday night because of health problems.

The story by the Star Tribune is written by a local reporter, and features more interviews and comments from current Twins team members and other friends.

The Associated Press article in the Pioneer Press focused more on the life of Carneal himself, citing an interview in 2003 that the AP had done.
