Carl "Rocky" E. “Rocky” Beane (Carl E. Beane)

Carl E. “Rocky” Beane

Sports Announcer. He served as the voice of the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park from 2003 until his death. As a child he would go to Red Sox games and the voice he heard was that of their legendary public address announcer Sherm Feller who greatly influenced his decision to pursue a career in broadcasting. At the initiation of his association with the Red Sox, he attributed his success to Yankee Stadium’s legendary Bob Sheppard. Upon his graduation from Agawam High School (Massachusetts), he found a position as a disc jockey during the night shifts. He studied at the Career Academy School of Broadcasting and the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, prior to serving as a radio sports announcer at various venues. Beane first came to recognition nationally as a contributor for ESPN Radio broadcasts. In 2003, he won out over other potential candidates to fill the vacancy of Fenway Park’s public address announcer and during his decade-long tenure, he earned the distinction of calling Boston’s lineup during what would be their first World Championship (2004) since 1918. He went onto experience a second World Series title with the Red Sox in 2007. Beane lent his voice to “The Baseball Experience” exhibit at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. He died after suffering a heart attack while driving, which resulted in an automobile crash. (bio by: C.S.)
