Who was Halsey Hall?

Halsey Hall was a sports reporter and announcer in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area from the 1920s to 1970s.

The son of reporter Smith B. Hall and actress Mary Hall, he entered journalism in November 1919 after being discharged from the United States Navy. Hall worked for several newspapers in the Twin Cities area, including the Minneapolis Tribune, the Minneapolis Star, and the Saint Paul Pioneer Press. He later did radio broadcasts for Minneapolis Millers and Minnesota Twins baseball and Minnesota Golden Gophers football. Hall originated "Holy cow!" as a home run call on WCCO radio long before Harry Caray used it.

The Halsey Hall Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research [SABR] located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, maintains a biographical sketch of Halsey Hall at http://www.halseyhall.org/whowas.html.
