Boston Red Sox public address announcer Carl Beane died on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack while driving in Sturbridge, Mass. He was 59.
"We are filled with sadness at this tragic news," Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said. "His legion of friends with the Red Sox and the media will miss him enormously, and all of Red Sox Nation will remember his presence, his warmth, and his voice."
Beane died after his car hit a tree and a wall.
“No one loved his role with the Red Sox more than Carl did his,” Lucchino said. “He adored the opportunity to contribute to the culture of Fenway Park, a place he loved passionately.”
Beane is survived by his wife, Lorraine; his daughter, Nicole; and his granddaughters, Maddie and Gena.
"Rest in peace Carl Beane, God bless your soul. The voice of the Red Sox in Fenway. Carl Beane and Harry Kalas calling games on the ultimate field. Heaven is blessed today," former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said via his Twitter account.
