Remembering the broadcasting legend
Many years ago, I was lucky enough to attend a sunny Giants/Cubs game with a bunch of classmates. There were about 12 of us in all, including some high school and college classmates, including 6 or 7 young women.
Harry was trundling around the parking lot, and came by, gave his big rendition of a smile, shook the hands of the group of us, and said, among other things, "Boy! You guys got it made! A beautiful day of baseball with beautiful women! I hope the Cubs have that kind of luck today!"
I'm sure Harry said a similar line a thousand times or more, but it didn't matter. He genuinely meant it. And we were lucky.
Thanks, Harry. You made the game better.
