15. Joe's Coming Out Party

Event: 1989 AAA All-Star Game
Date: 7/12/1989

If not for his trademark butt chin, you'd have a hard time recognizing the young, spry on-field reporter in the above clip. Joe Buck was a student at University of Indiana when he got his first "major break" with a live interview during the '89 AAA All-Star Game. From day one, Joe Buck's been a sports broadcasting triple-threat. He had a gracefully disheveled blowout, an insufferable need to over-enunciate, and a cumbersome ear piece full of hard hitting questions for Todd Zeile and Greg Vaughn about their home run battle. It's inspiring to see a spazzed-out, pubescent superstar in the making.
