Oh, my! Enberg joins Padres booth

Source: San Diego Padres hire*Enberg as lead TV voice - MLB - SI.com

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- **** Enberg has agreed to become the San Diego Padres' lead television play-by-play announcer, a person familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the club didn't plan to announce the multiyear deal until Thursday afternoon.

Enberg will do 110 to 120 games a season, the person said. He's expected to continue to broadcast Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Enberg is known for his signature phrase, "Oh, My."

Enberg began his full-time broadcasting career in 1965 in Los Angeles as the radio and television voice of the California Angels, UCLA basketball and the Los Angeles Rams.

The new Padres ownership group has been courting Enberg for several months.

It'll be an easy commute for Enberg, who lives in the San Diego area.

The current play-by-play announcer, Mark Neely, will do the games Enberg misses and will have other duties. Neely was hired before the 2009 season. Former big league pitcher Mark Grant will continue to be the color commentator.
