From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eloy "Buck" Canel (March 4, 1906 – April 7, 1980) was an American Spanish language sportscaster of Major League Baseball games. Canel was born in Argentina when he father was working for the Spain consulate in that country. He won the 1985 Ford C. Frick Award. He began his career in journalism. He died in 1980 in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.

Canel announced the New York Mets and New York Yankees games in Spanish during the 1970s over radio station WHOM, which was then a Spanish radio station in New York City. The feeds were occasionally broadcast to Latin American radio stations.[1]

The call letters of WHOM are now used for an easy listening station in Portland, Maine.
