Skip Caray Dead At 68

Harry Christopher "Skip" Caray Jr. moved from St. Louis to Atlanta in the 1960s
partly to escape the professional shadow of his father, the iconic and inimitable baseball broadcaster Harry Caray. Over the next four decades, with a style very much his own, Skip Caray became as much the voice of baseball in the Southeast as his father had been in the Midwest.

Caray died in his sleep early Sunday at his Atlanta home, the Braves announced. He was 68.
