Marty Brennaman, the legendary voice of baseball’s Reds has called it quits after 46 years, with his last game coming Thursday when Cincinnati takes on the Milwaukee Brewers.
Brennaman, 77, has called some of the game’s most iconic moments, including Hank Aaron’s 714th homer that tied Babe Ruth for the most all-time, three World Series titles and Pete Rose’s record-setting hit No. 4,192.
His famed tagline “this one belongs to the Reds” will retire along with Brennaman, but he doesn’t seem to mind.
“I truly believe I’m going to be a whole lot less relevant, and that’s good with me,” he said. “I’m fine with that.”
Brennaman got the opportunity to joke around with another legend behind the mike, the Brewers’ Bob Uecker, on his next-to-last night of work.
He said he won’t be tempted to return to the job, however.
