If you are a Blue Jays fan then you know his voice.   Jerry Howarth has been the Blue Jays Broadcaster for 36 years and now he is set to retire immediately.   He says that he had every intention to do the 2018 season but health issues that are effecting his voice have dictated otherwise.

Howarth was born in York, Pennsylvania and started his career with the Tacoma Twins of the Pacific Coast League in 1974. He joined the Blue Jays in 1981 and has been in Toronto ever since, becoming a Canadian citizen in the process.

Howarth has also called over 7,500 ballgames, calling every major game for the Blue Jays including six division titles and two World Series championships.

Baseball won’t be the same without him.
