Top 10: National Play by Play Announcers

One of the great baseball play by play announcers, Skip Caray, who was the announcer for the Atlanta Braves and son of Harry Caray, passed away yesterday. I figured the next installment of the Top 10 should be dedicated to the Top 10 Play by Play announcers on a national level.

First let me mention a couple of my favorite play by play announcers in baseball as some Honorable Mentions: Vin Scully (Dodgers), Harry Kalas (Phillies), and Bob Uecker (Brewers).
