Mike Doc Emrick has announced he is retiring as a play by play guy after a brilliant career. I want to write a full out tribute to Doc, and I will, because as good as Doc was behind the mic, he was all that and more behind the scenes. A truly great person in every way. A guy who was there for anyone who needed a friend or a pick me up. I will write more and talk more about Doc, but I wanted to at least say a quick Thanks!
