Muncie Indiana Sports
Muncie's Morry Mannies, who served as the "voice of the cardinals" for 56 years, has died at the age of 81. His career began at WLBC when he stepped behind the microphone to oversee the Indianapolis Colts' first game against the New York Yankees in 1946. In addition to his work on W LBC and WXFN Radio in Muncie, he also covered football and basketball games at Indiana State University at IUPUI, the University of Indiana and Indiana University - Bloomington.
His last broadcast came on November 26, 2009, when the men's basketball team played Western Michigan in the final game of the season at the Muncie Civic Center. Milan led 23-17 at halftime and tied it at 26-26 at the end of the third quarter, but Milan Ray Craft made it 12-12 with a basket. Munster came back, grabbed a rebound, turned the ball over and converted it on the next possession to make it 3-0 and a 47-44 lead.
Mannies was one of the most respected men's basketball coaches in Indiana State, and received the Alumni Association's highest honor when he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2005. He joined the Central Alumni Association and continued to pay his $10 annual dues until Beck took him to Central's Memorabilia Room and showed him a ball signed by former Muncie basketball player and current Indiana University coach Mike D'Angelo.
In 1983 he finished his career with 111 sprint, Olympic and semi-triathlons, including a national record of 1: 30: 43 at the US Triathlon Championships. He was also a member of America's Multi-Sport, America's oldest multi-sport organization and the nation's largest.
