Richard Alan Enberg (January 9, 1935 – December 21, 2017) was an American sportscaster.Over the course of an approximately 60-year career, he provided play-by-play of various sports for several radio and television networks, including NBC (1975–1999), CBS (2000–2014), and ESPN (2004–2011), as well as for individual teams, such as UCLA Bruins basketball, Los Angeles Rams football, and California Angels and San Diego Padres baseball.
Enberg was well known for his signature on-air catchphrases "Touch 'em all" (for home runs) and "Oh, my!" (for particularly exciting and outstanding athletic plays).
He also announced or hosted the Tournament of Roses Parade for many years, sometimes with the help of family members.
Enberg retired from broadcasting in 2016, after seven seasons as the Padres' primary television announcer.
