Los Angeles Angels sportscaster Rory Markas has died at age 54. Read more on Rory Markas’ death below.

The team’s spokesperson Tim Mead says the longtime Angels announcer was found dead at his home in Palmdale, California on Monday.  Markas’ cause of death has not yet been released.

Markas made the famous call in 2002 at the Worlds Series when Darin Erstad caught a fly ball, winning the game. “Erstad says he’s got it! Erstad makes the catch! The Anaheim Angels are the champions of baseball!” he said.

Back in November 2008, Markas had suffered a blood clot in his brain but had returned to announcing this season.

Markas’ broadcast partner stated on the loss: “We’re not going to be together — traveling together, getting a bite to eat together, in the booth together. I just can’t believe that’s not going to happen.”

This was Rory Markas’  eighth season with the Angels. He also had been a sports reporter for KNX Radio and a sports anchor for KTTV.
