Enberg got his big break with UCLA basketball and went on to call Super Bowls, Olympics, Final Fours and Angels and Padres baseball games as well as Rams football games. He retired from his TV job with the Padres in October 2016, capping a six-decade career punctuated with countless calls of “Oh my!” in describing big plays. He was 82.
Enberg has been calling Major League Baseball games in Southern California for nearly 20 seasons, split by stints as one of the most recognizable voices on NBC and CBS. Enberg said the call from Baseball’s Hall of Fame “took me to my knees. Baseball is part of my DNA…. That was certainly an ‘Oh my!’ moment.”
