As a huge sports fan, I have admired the great work of many outstanding sports reporters. In my opinion, Don Chevrier ranked among the very best:

Few reporters had the ability to cross over into so many sports and to do such a professional job of reporting. I always had the sense that he did his homework and engaged in extensive study of a sport before he appeared on TV to report it.

Here is what other Canadians are saying about this great reporter:

While most posters on this forum usually disregard this part of the forum, I would like to know what other CC folks think about Mr Chevrier.

In my opinion he was a very good baseball announcer, and he was very respected. Hard to believe he's gone.

Can't say I ever heard of the chap, then again, I haven't watched a baseball game since the strike back in the 90's.

I remember him as well, gopher. A very fine announcer, and a gentleman as well.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Chevrier.:-(
