Cavaliers Play-by-Play Announcer Fred McLeod Dies at 67

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Tuesday that play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod died at the age of 67.

Although the circumstances surrounding McLeod's death haven't yet been made public, the Cavaliers noted that he died "suddenly" Monday evening.

McLeod had been the Cavs' play-by-play announcer on Fox Sports Ohio since 2006.

During his time as a basketball announcer, McLeod saw the Pistons win three championships, and he also announced the first championship in Cavaliers history when they beat the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.

The Strongsville, Ohio, native was also a three-time recipient of the Lower Great Lakes Emmy Award for his work on Fox Sports Ohio.
