Oh man am I old. He did the play-by-play for th OLD Senators. I watched many of his games. Pre-game was titled Dugout Chatter.

Bob Wolff was the first TV announcer for the Washington Nationals, ordinarily called the Washington Senators. Started in 1947 and continued until Calvin stole away to Minneapolis. Sometimes worked nationally: called Don Larsen's perfect game. Elected to Broadcasters Wing of the Hall of Fame in the mid '90s. Did NBC's Game of the Week through the '60s with Joe Garagiola.

Author of "It's Not Who Won of Lost the Game -- It's How You Sold the Beer", a collection of stories about his memorable broadcasting moments.
