"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. The San Francisco symphony proudly presents a new season of feature films with live orchestra featuring Jurassic Park law La Land, Mary Poppins and more. Visit SF symphony dot org slash film for details and information. Remembering Hank Greenwald, the gentlemen, humorist by Bruce tank ins, tracking hang Greenwald's broadcasting career is a bit like trying to identify every song ever performed by Bob Dylan. There's a new discovery around every corner Greenwald who died at eighty three on Monday covered. Syracuse football during the heyday of Ernie Davis Floyd little and Larry's uncle he was the voice of USF basketball for a spell in the nineteen seventies. He wants hosted a weekly forty Niners television show appearing one night in a helmet. So comically large it came down over his shoulders. And that was Hank. John Miller fondly recalled anything for a laugh, and then there was that visit Portland in nineteen sixty five. It was a western Hockey League trip covering the San Francisco seals against the Portland Bucker ruse and during a quick stop in Seattle Greenwald hap-. To meet a woman named Carla writer. They had a very innocent date and when Greenwald returned to Seattle three years later on a San Francisco warriors trip, they launched a relationship. He was such a gentleman Carla recalled this week, I think we went out three times before he kissed me. I said to myself my God, what's with this guy. The gentleman happen to be extremely funny and bound for glory in his profession. It was his wit. That really got me Carlo said, he always told me life with him would never be dull. And it certainly wasn't the two were engaged in nineteen seventy and Greenwald had big plans. He traveled to Australia the year before and fell in love with the country so much so that the two spent their honeymoon. They're back in San Francisco where they had a two bedroom. Two bath apartment on Nob hill for three hundred sixty five dollars a month. They arranged a return to Australia by freighter bay set sail on a sixty. Trip in June, nineteen Seventy-three with stops in Hong Kong and Malaysia. And quote, we were thinking of staying in Australia for good Carlos, Ed, but Hank founded difficult to get work, and we were both getting a little homesick. And by the time Douglas was born September nineteen seventy four we knew we'd be coming back. Doug grew up with his dad's passion for sports, especially baseball and next spring will be calling the Fresno grizzlies games in the Pacific coast league for the seventeenth year memo to major league baseball somebody get this man to the big leagues. He's that. Good life was more difficult with the greenwalds second child Kelly who was born with down syndrome. That's when Hank was at his best Carla said, he got me through the hard part with Kelly. There were times when I just wanted to throw in the towel with her. I just couldn't handle it. But Hank was right there. He told me from the day. She was born we are not giving up on this. Child to see Kelly today is to witness a person who has always been loved full of life. Enjoy as my colleague Henry showman described her this week and the family presses on without the man who joined the all time greats of the broadcasting business Dwayne Kuyper played four seasons with the giants after being traded from Cleveland and by the time of his retirement in nineteen eighty-five. He had a radio show on Ken Biard joining the giants broadcast team year later he had the good fortune of working with Greenwald. He was the perfect guy for me and Mike to learn the business Kuyper said this week, we were young energetic ballplayers coming off the field. And somehow he had to corral that energy and focus on making. Sure, we had a good broadcast. His preparation was. Unbelievable. He carried around little notebooks on each team filled with stuff he'd clip out of newspapers and scotch taped onto the page, and he felt that a true. Professional dresses that way, he wore a suit and tie every single day. Even if it was one hundred five degrees in Houston laughter invariably found its way into a Kuyper Greenwald booth. We were in Miami. And we heard these two deejays doing a spoof on the local broadcasters who constantly made mistakes and shrugged them off with the same. Catchphrase must have been the glare. I was just starting out on play by play doing a few innings before Hank took over. And I totally blew a call had the giants Willie McGee hitting a home run. When in fact, Jeffco nine caught it. So I'm trying to explain my way out of this. And I look over at hang and he's just shaking with laughter because he knows what he's gonna say must have been the glare. I'm sure the people at home wondered what was so damn funny. But Hank was laughing so hard I had to do the play by play the next inning. These are the moments that sustained Greenwald's memory and make it easier for everyone to excess. Such a great loss every night. You turn on the news. And it's a HP officer dying age twenty seven leaving behind three kids. Doug, Greenwald said or hearing about kids with cancer who don't live to age ten. This wasn't the case. My dad lived his dream doing major league baseball, even near the end listening to games on the radio. It brought him so much joy. He lived a full life.
