    Longtime Braves, Cubs and Astros broadcaster. Called Hank Aaron's 715th home run, among other things:

    You know who listened to Milo Hamilton? Bill Clinton. While he was having his espresso machine repaired and encouraging all the pot-smokers out there to disrespect police officers.

    One of the most amazing things about Milo Hamilton's career longevity? He broadcast St. Louis Browns games. How many people who played or worked for that franchise are still around? I think Ned Garver and Roy Sievers are still alive, and so is Mary Frances Veeck.

    Jungle Jim Rivera is still alive, I believe.

    I hope Harry Carey isn't waiting for him at the pearly gates. Shit will get real.

    Not quite the same, but I wonder if the Browns ever played the Brooklyn Dodgers in exhibition games that were broadcasted by Vin Scully?

    When Milo publicly trashed Harry on the day he died, Skip referred to him as "typical gutless Milo Hamilton" on the air.

    This article (written by a newspaper editor in Florida who is a lifelong Cardinals fan) is mainly about Joe Garagiola, but it sheds some light on the origins of the Hamilton-Caray feud. It appears to have started long before their uncomfortable pairing with the Cubs:
