On Wednesday evening, White Sox radio broadcaster and former MLB pitcher Ed Farmer passed away.

Farmer was a Chicago native who lived out his dream of playing baseball at the highest level. He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the fifth round of the 1967 MLB Draft. Farmer spent much of his playing career with several different teams, but he was able to achieve another dream and play for his hometown Chicago White Sox from 1979-1981. In his three years spent on the South Side, Farmer earned his only All-Star appearance in 1980.

After his playing career, he spent some time with the Baltimore Orioles as a scout. Then in 1991, Farmer accepted a job as a color commentator for his hometown White Sox. He then took over play-by-play duties in 2006.

Ed loved baseball and Sox fans everywhere loved him. He was an absolute pleasure to listen to on the radio if you were unable to catch the game on television. Though Sox fans everywhere will mourn the loss of a great person, let’s try to remember the good times. The White Sox made a great video of Ed’s best calls.

Rest In Power, Ed.
