Jerry Coleman longtime announcer for the San Diego Padres who passed away recently:

"Willie Davis is not as young as he used to be."

"There's someone warming up in the bullpen, but he's obscured by his number."

"Sunday is Senior Citizens' Day. And if you want to become a senior citizen, just call the Padre ticket office."

"Young Frank Pastore may have just pitched the biggest victory of 1979, maybe the biggest victory of the year."

"Mike Caldwell, the Padres' right-handed southpaw, will pitch tonight."

"Houston has its largest crowd of the night here this evening."

"Well, it looks like the all-star balloting is about over, especially in the National and American Leagues."

"What we have here is a blowout, or a possible great comeback."

"If Pete Rose brings the Reds in first, they ought to bronze him and put him in cement."

"I've made a couple of mistakes I'd like to do over."

"Larry Lintz steals second standing up. He slid, but he didn't have to."

"That big guy, Winfield, at 6'6", can do things only a small man can do."

"I challenge anyone, even with a radar machine, to hit that slider."

"I've never seen a game like this. Every game this year has been like this."

"If I knew how to spell it I'd say déjà vu."
