It's a sad night in New England as the Boston Globe reports that Fenway Park public address announcer Carl Beane died in a single-car accident on Wednesday afternoon. The 59-year-old had manned the mic at Fenway since 2003 and was well-known around Boston as a local radio announcer.
According to Peter Abraham of the Globe, Beane was driving his car in Sturbridge, Mass., when it "crossed the double solid lines, left the road and hit a tree and a wall." The accident did not involve anyone else and is still being investigated by police.
Here's video of Mr. Beane's work at a recent Red Sox game. May he rest in peace.
