The voice of Fenway Park, Carl Beane, died due to injuries sustained in a car accident in Sturbridge, Mass., multiple reports said Wednesday.
Beane was 59-years-old.
The PA announcer with the deep voice, welcomed fans to Fenway Park with the familiar phrase of “Welcome to Fenway Park, America’s Most Beloved ballpark.”
Other Beane-isms included “Strrrrrrretch!” during the middle of the seventh inning and the rolling of the “R’s” when he would pronounce names like “Manny Ramirez.”
Beane had occupied the Fenway Park PA booth since 2003 and had a voice remarkably similar to that of longtime Fenway PA announcer Sherm Feller, who died in 1994.
Beane's Suzuki SUV crossed the double solid line, went off the road and hit a tree and a wall at 233 Holland Road in Sturbridge, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. There were no passengers in Beane's vehicle in the one-car crash.
