Legendary announcer and former Major League Baseball player Joe Garagiola has passed away.
He was 90-years-old.
In a photo we obtained from the Las Vegas News Bureau, Garagiola is being "roasted" by Dean Martin and many other celebrity friends including Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra.
This took place at the MGM hotel in 1976.
Garagiola was awarded the Ford Frick award for his contributions to baseball in 1991 by the baseball Hall of Fame.
