“HOT ZIGGITY DOG ~ AND GOOD OLD SASAFRAS TEA! ~ HOLD ON, FOLKS!”

THE BUFFS/COLTS/ASTROS MAY STILL BE DOWN BY 8 IN THE 7TH, BUT….

THAT BUNT SINGLE MAY AS WELL BE A TRUMPET ~ BLOWIN’ CLEAR ….

…. WE AIN’T DEAD YET!!!”

LOEL PASSE
Houston Buffs Radio Broadcaster, 1950-1961;
Houston MLB Broadcaster, 1962-1976.

“NOW YOU GOIN’, GANG!!!!”

Thank You, Darrell Pittman, for finding and submitting this article for note and credit to Jim Bishop and the Victoria Advocate for their earlier publication on July 20, 1997. Large parts of Houston Baseball history would otherwise be lost were it not for writers like Jim Bishop and this also history-energized South Texas newspaper.

Yeah, we know. The print was a little small, but if you knew, or remember Loel as a broadcaster, we hope it will be worth the squint. Loel was one of the lights that filled in the landscape before we even came close to the level that now fills the house of the current World Champions, the 2017 Houston Astros.
