Skip Caray memorial service on Tuesday

Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Beloved Braves announcer Skip Caray will be honored at a 10 a.m. memorial service Tuesday at Turner Field.

Caray's long-time broadcast partner Joe Simpson will lead the event, which will include tributes from Pete Van Wieren, Chip Caray, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and Braves CEO Terry McGuirk. Fans who wish to attend can park in the Green lot and enter through the Plaza gates. Gates will open at 9 a.m.

There will be more tributes at Tuesday night's game (ironically against the Chicago Cubs, where Caray's father, Harry, was a broadcast icon), with a pre-game ceremony that will include the Caray family.
