Boudreau's reputation includes being one of the slowest runners in the game and being a great Shortstop. Can anyone reconcile these two attributes? Was his positioning and anticipation just that good? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:20, 31 October 2008 (UTC)Will in New Haven220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:20, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't have a reference, but know it as a fact having heard and seen on TV many, many BH games he announced. There's a good chance he occasionally announced a White Sox game as well, but WGN broadcast very few Sox games during that time. All around, he could be called WGN's pinch hitting sports announcer.

I'll vouch for that: I heard him on a few Black Hawks radio games growing up in Chicago. I recall he was a color man for Lloyd Pettit. Sad to say, Lou didn't add much to the effort. Great ballplayer, great baseball mind, but very flat on the air, even doing baseball. WHPratt (talk) 01:23, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
He is listed in Category: Jewish Major League Baseball players. I'm told that having a Jewish mother makes one Jewish, but he was raised in his father's presumed Catholic faith. I just edited to add an obituary link telling of a Catholic funeral. Casey (talk) 18:44, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
