STURBRIDGE - Carl Beane, the Agawam native who served as the public address announcer at Fenway Park, died Wednesday in a car accident in Sturbridge. Beane, 59, a Holland resident, was pronounced dead at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge a short time after the crash, according to a statement issued by Timothy Connelly of the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office.

Real sad news.  I guess when it’s going bad it’s going bad.   RIP Carl Beane.

PS – Is it too soon to say Dr. Charles is probably the happiest guy in the building because he gets to throw another elaborate ceremony that takes the focus off the team.    Yes I suppose it is, but I’d be lying if I didn’t think it.
