Hall Of Famer, Announcer Ralph Kiner Dies

Kiner hit .369 home runs during his 10-year career, mostly with the Pittsburgh Pirates. When he retired early because of back problems, Kiner was sixth on the career home run list. Several years later, he joined the broadcast crew of the Mets for their expansion season in 1962 and earned a permanent place — the home TV booth at Shea Stadium was named in his honor. He was 91.
