From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Halsey Hall (May 23, 1898 – December 30, 1977) was a sports reporter and announcer in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area from the 1920s to 1970s.

The son of reporter Smith B. Hall and actress Mary Hall, he entered journalism in November 1919 after being discharged from the United States Navy. Hall worked for several newspapers in the Twin Cities area, including the Minneapolis Tribune, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press and the Minneapolis Star. He later did radio broadcasts for the Minneapolis Millers, Minnesota Golden Gophers football and the Minnesota Twins. Hall originated "Holy cow!" as a home run call on WCCO radio long before Harry Caray used it.
