Condolences to family and friends of NEW YORK METS Spanish radio broadcaster BILLY BERROA, who died WEDNESDAY in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC following a long illness.
BERROA, 79, began broadcasting Major League Baseball games in 1963 and served two tours of duty with the METS, most recently handling games on UNIVISION Spanish Talk WADO-A/NEW YORK. He had been scheduled to broadcast 25 games for CABLEVISION's Spanish-language tier in 2007 but fell ill early in the year and returned to his SANTO DOMINGO home.
