Pete Van Wieren

Our baseball family lost one of its good guys when Pete Van Wieren - "The Professor" - passed away on August 2, 2014.  

Pete is a broadcasting legend.  He retired after the 2008 season following a 33 year career as a Braves television and radio broadcaster.  Pete, along with his broadcast partners Ernie Johnson Sr. & Skip Caray, developed a nationwide following when the Braves' telecasts were broadcast across the country on Superstation WTBS in the early days of cable television.  For years, local radio listeners waited eagerly for his "Diamond Notes" segment prior to Braves' games.  Pete was inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame in 2004.   We'll miss him, and our thoughts are with Pete's family.
