    I am just now hearing of Bill King's passing. An earlier post I had, questioned why I wasn't hearing him on broadcasts. I am a fan of baseball on the radio, and Mr. Bill King was one of the best. I loved his calls of Warriors games the best....HOLY TOLEDO!!!!!!! May God bless his soul, his family, and those who loved him.......

            It's quite a shame that this man wasn't honored earlier , and is not already in either the Football ,Baseball , or Basketball HOF's for sportscasters..Ken Korach is a fine announcer but it won't be the same listening to A's games on the radio without Bill King...

              Bill King is Bay Area legend. He was a well-known Raider announcer before he began broadcasting the A's, and he used to broadcast the NBA Golden State Warriors, too. He had a fantastic career. Anyone of us would consider ourselves very fortunate to have lived the life that he did.

              The A's will be wearing a patch on their uniforms this year featuring a microphone and the words "HOLY TOLEDO" in his honor.
