A Phillies broadcaster for 26 years from 1976 to 2001, Andy Musser, 74, passed away on Sunday. Musser called games not just for the Phillies, but also the Eagles, 76ers and several other organizations throughout his career.
Musser was a Philadelphia-area native and an Army veteran, making him a popular home-grown addition to the Philadelphia sports circuit. He worked as a broadcaster during many great moments including two World Series, two Super Bowls and two Masters Championships. Musser also called the division-clinching Mike Schmidt homer in 1980.
This is another sad day for the Phillies family. Musser was well-liked and respected and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this very difficult time.
The memorial service for Musser will be held at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, 625 Montgomery Ave., Bryn Mawr, PA at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31. Donations may be made to the church in lieu of flowers.
