Baseball Broadcaster. He was a baseball radio sportscaster best known for being the voice of the Houston Astros. He began his career in the big-league baseball booth when the National League Colt .45s, came to Houston in 1962. For the next fourteen years (1962-76), he was a popular fixture with the fans giving play by play for the Colt .45s and Houston Astros. Among his many pauses, Houston fans knew something fine had happened when Loel would chortle, "Hot ziggity dog" and sassafras tea!" He died of cancer at age 82 in Houston, Texas and was posthumously inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame in 2004.
