Fenway Park announcer Beane dies in car crash

Carl Beane, the public address announcer at Fenway Park, was killed in a single car crash in Sturbridge, Mass. on Wednesday.

The news was first reported by NECN and was confirmed by the Worcester County district attorney.

Beane, 59, began his career as the public address announcer at Fenway in 2003.

According to his website, Beanes voice can be heard in "The Baseball Experience" at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Beane was born and raised in Agawam, Mass. and started his career in sports radio broadcasting in 1972.

Beane told NECN in 2005 he had always wanted to be a ballplayer but he settled for the next best thing: calling out the players' names in front of the Fenway faithful.
