  • Warner Fusselle, former This Week in Baseball announcer, passes away

    NEW YORK -- Warner Fusselle, the Brooklyn Cyclones' play-by-play announcer since the team's inception in 2001, passed away Sunday evening from an apparent heart attack. He was 68.

    "We are deeply saddened by the news of Warner's passing," Cyclones general manager Steve Cohen said in a statement. "There is no one who knew more -- or cared more -- about baseball in Brooklyn than Warner. His distinctive voice, knowledge and endless passion for the game enriched Brooklyn Cyclones baseball for our players, staff, and fans from Day 1, and his presence will be sorely missed."

    A native of Gainesville, Ga., Fusselle served in Korea during the Vietnam War. He was also the voice of the television show "This Week In Baseball," and he called St. John's baseball and Seton Hall basketball games during his career in New York. A Minor League baseball advocate, Fusselle also called games for the Richmond Braves, Virginia Squires and Spartanburg Phillies.
