A legend in the field of sportscasting, Dick Enberg was born in Mt. Clemens, Michigan in 1935. An athlete himself, Enberg played college baseball for the Central Michigan University Chippewas while earning his bachelor's degree. He would also earn a master's and doctorate in health sciences from Indiana University, during which time he voiced the first broadcast of the Little 500 bicycle race. Relocating to Los Angeles, Enberg became a full time sportscaster for KTLA in 1965. His presence in the sports world would become more and more well known, especially after he announced memorable games such as the 1968 "Game of the Century" between the Houston Cougars and the UCLA Bruins for TVS. In 1978, Enberg was hired as the play-by-play announcer for NBC Sports' "The NFL on NBC" (NBC, 1965-1997), and later hosted the pregame shows of the 1985 National League Championship Series. Enberg would switch networks in 2000 when he began providing coverage of the NFL, college basketball, and US Open Tennis for CBS Sports, and he would later become the play-by-play announcer for ESPN's coverage of the Wimbledon, Australian, and French Open tennis tournaments. Though he gradually worked less and less, Enberg memorably acted as a special guest play-by-play broadcaster for Fox Sports Detroit's coverage of the Detroit Tigers' home game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Enberg passed away in December of 2017. He was 82 years old.
