It was many people’s first thought when the news of the death of Red Sox P.A. announcer Carl Beane was heard yesterday. But today the Sox have made it official:
Yesterday we lost our friend and voice, Carl Beane. Tonight the PA mic will be silent in his memory. #VoiceofFenway

A nice move. We often take people like the P.A. announcer for granted. But tonight, in his absence, Carl Beane will be remembered.
