Wiki

Richard Alan "Dick" Enberg (born January 9, 1935) is an American sportscaster currently employed by the San Diego Padres, CBS, and ESPN. His current duties include play-by-play for Padres telecasts on 4SD and coverage of three Grand Slam professional tennis tournaments for CBS, ESPN and ESPN2. He is well-known for his signature catchphrase ("Oh, my!") that he uses after exciting and outstanding athletic plays.

Enberg was born in Mount Clemens, Michigan. Following high school in Armada, Michigan, he played college baseball and earned a bachelor's degree in 1957 at Central Michigan University. Enberg then went on to graduate school at Indiana University, where he earned master's and doctorate degrees in health sciences. While at Indiana, Enberg voiced the first radio broadcast of the Little 500, the bicycle racing event popularized in the film Breaking Away. He was also the play-by-play announcer for Indiana Hoosiers football and basketball games, and in 1961 called his first NCAA basketball tournament event, the championship game between Cincinnati and Ohio State. From 1961 to 1965 he was an assistant professor and baseball coach at Cal State Northridge, then known as "San Fernando Valley State College."

Dick Enberg is also a member of the fraternity Phi Sigma Kappa.
