This Copyrighted Broadcast

Overview

For 17 years Hank Greenwald was the radio voice of the Giants, and he became one of the most beloved figures in San Francisco media history. Greenwald's wry sense of humor endeared him to all.

His daily trademark was his spoof of the cast disclaimer, hence the book's title. They loved it in San Francisco, a town that celebrates its characters. Greenwald retired early and splits his time between Florida and San Francisco.

AUTOGRAPHED BOOK by HANK GREENWALD This is the perfect gift for a baseball fan ... an AUTOGRAPHED book by famed San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees broadcaster Hank ... Greenwald. Hank Greenwald's acerbically free-wheeling look back at his years in the broadcast booth for primarily the San Francisco Giants, Warriors and Yankees. A collection of terrific anecdotes from a man who knows how to tells stories, move things along, and amuse with skill and absolute timing. Poignant in its revelations about family, especially concerning Hank and wife Carla's remarkable relationship with daughter Kellie, who has Down's syndrome and who has now published her memoirs in KELLIE'S BOOK: The Art of the Possible. "Style, not shtick. Wit, not bombast." That's the way Bob Costas describes longtime San Francisco Giants broadcaster Hank Greenwald's on-air voice in his foreword to Greenwald's acerbically free-wheeling look back at his years in the baseball broadcast booth. That also goes a long way toward characterizing the man and his autobiography. Greenwald, now retired from the grind of day-to-day game-calling, was a rarity on the air. He not only knew how to make a game come alive, but also how to liven up the pauses in action with a genuine humor that was funny but not self-serving, self-referential, or worse, self-reverential. Not surprisingly, This Copyrighted Broadcast reflects that skill: it's smart in its look at the state of the game, on and particularly off the field, it's funny, it's honest, it's daring in what it reveals about broadcasting and some of the absurdities of being a ball club's paid mouthpiece.

Editorial Reviews

Ron Fimrite
Wittily, the veteran sports announcer recalls a career thatt began at Syracuse University in the 1950's and ended as the San Fancisco Giants' play-by-play man in 1996. However, his most moving chapter is on his daughter, who was born with down syndrome.
