    When a broadcaster does the games for one team for a long time, that person will have a vast collection of stories to share That is the case for Jerry Howarth, who was a radio broadcaster for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1982 to 2017 He shares many of those stories and some about himself as well in this memoir.As one might imagine, a person who has had the same job for 36 years will have a wide variety of stories to tell Of course, he shares his recollections on famous moments in Blue Jays history, such as Joe Carter s walk off home run to win the 1993 World Series and the famous bat flip by Jose Bautista in the 2015 American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers However, what makes the book a little different from other collections of stories like this are all the personal connections Howarth had with so many Blue Jays players and personnel over the years.Some of these stories will be sad, such as the death of Howarth s long time broadcast partner, Tom Cheek His telling of the last half inning Cheek called for the Blue Jays will make the toughest of readers generate at least a sniffle But many, many of them are uplifting and tell about the successes and positive accomplishments of the subject, especially if it was a player Howarth rar...

    I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review For 36 years, Jerry Howarth ushered in eternal hope each spring and thrived in the drive of each fall as the voice of the Toronto Blue Jays In 1982, the lifelong avid sports fan joined Tom Cheek as full time play by play radio announcer for the Blue Jays, and for the next 23 years, Tom and Jerry were the voices of the franchise Jerry became part of the fabric of a nation and a team, covering historic moments like the rise of the Blue Jays through the 1980s that culminated in back to back World Series Championships in 1992 and 1993 His Hall of Fame worthy broadcasting career has been nothing short of legendary When Jerry retired in February 2018, the tributes poured in and made one thing perfectly clear Toronto baseball would never be the same Howarth brings together thoughts on life, family, work, and baseball Featuring stories about everyone from Dave Stieb, Jack Morris, Duane Ward, Roberto Alomar, and Joe Carter to John Gibbons, Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson, and the late Roy Halladay, Hello, Friends is a must read for sports fans everywhere.I am a recent convert to baseball and, in particular, the Toronto Blue Jays so I was very interested to have a read of this boo...

    A well known comedian actor whose love of baseball is legendary included his impressions of some Yankees legends in one of his books The guy loved Mickey Mantle, despite his flaws He did not like Joe Dimaggio, because of his Perhaps this was because he knew the former well enough to see past the negatives and could focus on his good points The latter, his only encounters were negative ones Jerry Howarth s new book, Hello, Friends takes the approach that the aforementioned author took with Mr Mantle EVERYONE must have some redeeming qualities A brusque alcoholic Well, I hear he s getting treatment for his addiction and his anger management issues A manager lying about his military service history He s apologized and doesn t do that any etc etc.Mr Howarth ALSO intermingles his own life story in between the tales of his encounters with the personalities of baseball and the games he has witnessed Occasionally, the transition comes off a little awkward, but most of the time, working along a timeline, it makes perfect sense as to how why the author switches his subject between baseball and Howarth family life.A decent read The book may have been a bit inter...

    Blue Jays baseball on the radio and Tom And Jerry are the fabric of my early days as a baseball fan Tom and Jerry taught me the game that I really knew nothing about when I started watching around 1989 My hope for this book was a warm, heart warming story of the the man behind the mic since the 80s One of a handful that has seen the good, bad and ugly of the Toronto Blue Jays What the book was, was a chronicle of Jerry Howarth s time with the Blue Jays and small, intimate snippets of the players and personnel that made the team who and what it was through the years The peek behind the curtain that I had hoped for wasn...

    Thanks for the ARC copy of this book from ECW Press This book is an In depth look on and off the field at the game of Baseball through the commentators and players points of view..Jerry worked hard in the early stages of his Career by recording games, and then playing back commentary s on the tapes..A good daily routine is essential for Jerry in Order to be a fine broadcastor, he broadcasts approx 162 games per season and before each game does a lot of preparation and research from his players list and pre and post games interviews with some of the players.Jerry likes to make people feel that they our at an actual baseball game wherever they might be listening to the radio and T.V Basically there our two key factors talent and dedication that make or break a players career Also we should try to remember that the players our real people to and we should not get upset if they do not play well,they should be appreciated for who they really are..despite troubles with addiction etcTom Henke is one of his fave Blue Jays he has 4 children one of who was born with Down s syndrome, every year he has a charity golf classic to raise money for Si learning centre Carlos Delgardo was the only player to have an RBI Recordof 30 home runs in ten straight seasons.1998 was the Blue Jays last full season at the Ex 1992 Cito Gasto first African American manager to win that yrs series.1993 series produced 4 future Hall of famers players1994 Same year world series cancelled due t...

    This book is great for people who love baseball and the Blue Jays There were many stories from Howarth s early childhood through his retirement His stories from his days as a major league broadcaster are not only about Blue Jays players, but players from other teams as well so don t think this book is only about the Jays Howarth s unique stories really showcase what the league is really like, how the players are behind the scenes, and interesting statistics about the players and the league itself I personally found the stories about the players and their lives rather fascinating.I would recommend this book for people who either know a fair amount of players in the league either past or present or people who want to learn about the world of major league baseball from a behind the scenes perspective As a casual Blue Jays fan only, I personally had some trouble understanding the connections between some of Howarth s stories as I was not famili...
