    That's sad. Even in his later years, he was my favorite guest on the Met's broadcast. I'm too young to remember the Kiner's Korner from the 60s through the 80s but he was always a great storyteller. Some forget how great of a baseball player he was too.

    RIP.

    Sandy is a proven liar and a shill for the worst ownership in baseball

    Sad news: Ralph Kiner has passed away at age 91. Active broadcaster through last season.

    I used to love rain delays on WOR.

    Ralph would find someone at the stadium -- an old friend usually -- and they'd talk baseball for the entire rain delay. I learned a lot about the history and of some of the personalities of the game during rain delays.

    This sports and the Mets family lost one of the all-time greats.

    If only Branch Rickey just paid him what he was owed besides the Pirates coming in last.

    The ghost of Branch Rickey is probably celebrating now knowing Ralph won't be able to tell all those cheapskate stories anymore.

    But seriously, i grew up in an era when the same three broadcasters, Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy, and Ralph Kiner, did all the games on TV and radio, usually with two on TV and one on radio if I recall. All three of them are special to me, irreplaceable.

    RIP Ralph. FoC is a bit sadder today now.
