Longtime Padres broadcaster honored with bronze statue at Petco
Padres announcer Jerry Coleman has accomplished many things during his 88 years on earth.
He won four World Series titles as a member of the Yankees, served admirably in two wars, received the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and on Saturday, the 'Colonel' was honored with a military-inspired statue at Petco Park.
Asked by Padres TV announcer Dick Enberg what he thought of his bronze bust, the always witty Coleman responded:
"I'm about to take it home and put it in the front lawn."
