Fox Sports San Diego has just announced that they'll be airing a tribute to our beloved Jerry Coleman tonight after the conclusion of their coverage of the Clippers game. The show "Remembering Jerry Coleman" is scheduled to start right around 10:30 p.m. PST. If you're planning on recording it, it's important that you pad an extra half hour or so on each end just in case the game runs long or ends early. I've learned that lesson the hard way many a time.
Jerry's fellow Padres broadcasters, Dick Enberg, Mark Grant, Ted Leitner and Randy Jones will be reminiscing and sharing their memories with the viewing audience. The show will also feature footage from his baseball, military and broadcasting careers. Sounds like something we won't want to miss.
"We will attempt to honor Jerry’s remarkable life with this special show," said Jeff Byle, Executive Producer of FOX Sports San Diego. "It’s a privilege to tell his story and celebrate the life of such an amazing person whose spirit will live on forever in San Diego."
