Dave Campbell

I met him at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida in 1995. He was there as one of the announcers for ESPN who were there to broadcast the game between the Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies.
I remember this day for a couple of reasons. First, it was a day/night doubleheader. A noon game between the St. Petersburg Cardinals and the Clearwater Phillies of the Florida State League, which I attended, followed by a spring training game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Philadelphia Phillies, which was being broadcast nationally on ESPN.
I actually called ESPN the day before, asking who would be the announcers for the game, that's how I knew to bring this card.
Second, it was April 19, 1995, the day of the Oklahoma City bombing.

Dave signed a 1973 Topps card #488.
