Sad news out of Boston this afternoon as police have announced that Carl Beane, the public address announcer at Fenway Park since 2003, was killed earlier today in a one-car crash in Sturbridge. He was 59 years old.
A.B. Horrible news. 59 is far too young to leave this world. Our condolences go out to the Beane family.
Carl Beane was the best. His voice was perfect for Fenway. Just an absolute booming yet comforting sound. He knew how to play to the crowd. In big games & big moments it seemed that “Manny Ramirez” would transfer to “Mannnnnyyyyy Raaaamirezzzzz” – allowing the crowd to build up the frenzy mid announcement. Fenway just won’t feel the same without him. R.I.P.
