Who was Andy Musser?

Andrew J. Musser, Jr. was an American sportscaster. He is best known for his time as a play-by-play announcer for Philadelphia Phillies baseball from 1976 to 2001.

Born in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, he grew up in nearby Harrisburg. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Syracuse University in 1959.

He was part of a team, with Richie Ashburn and Harry Kalas, which broadcast Phillies games on both radio and television for 21 consecutive seasons from 1976 to 1997. He retired after the 2001 season.

Musser worked for WCAU radio and television in Philadelphia from 1965 to 1971.
