"Griffey Baseball" Ump Steve Palermo dead at 67

Recommended Posts

Most baseball fans agree that Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball is one of the best "games of the game" ever, and a lot of us still play it thanks in large part to the updates made available here. Sadly, a key figure in the game, umpire voice Steve Palermo, passed away today at 67 (5-14-17) after battling cancer. He was known as a hero for stopping a 1991 robbery (and taking a bullet to the spinal cord for his effort) as well as a really good umpire, and in a way his legacy lives on every time any one fires up the game and hear his voice.


RIP Mr. Palermo.

I saw the news, but didn't associate him as being the voice of Ken Griffey Baseball.


Sounds like I need to stop dragging my feet with my Griffey 2017 release.


Must say I'm very excited to play it. My Braves' record isn't great but we've got a great lineup. Pitching's just let us down a bit. Can't wait to take some swings.
