RIP Warner Fusselle, a veteran, venerable announcer heard on everything from Brooklyn Cyclones and St. John’s baseball to Seton Hall basketball to “This Week in Baseball.’’ He died of an apparent heart attack Sunday at age 68.

Fusselle had been the Cyclones’ lead announcer since their inception in 2001 – the minor league team once held a Warner Fusselle Bobblehead Night – but his eclectic career also included calling games for the ABA Virginia Squires during Julius Erving’s days with the team. He also had vast collections of baseball books and music records.
