Best of all time and best in the game now are two different things. I think James from Chester is the best going today but back in the good old days I would say jack lee, Gil Levine, and Carl Becker are the best.

Impossible to compare across eras as the job description has changed drastically over time.

Hearing Carl & Kurt Becker at Springfield & especially DuQuoin are as good as it gets in my humble opinion.

Lederman is fantastic...
I actually liked Gene Hart down at Brandywine.
Howard Oil? Are you kidding?
Boring calls, monotone voice, and bad races to call. Not for me..
Jack was very good, got sloppy late in his career...
I also liked the guy at Cal Expo years ago, Joe Alto. Accurate caller. "It's Crunch Time!!"
