Merle Harmon Dies
MOMENT OF SILENCE: The AP reports former boxing announcer LES KEITER, who "was known for his radio re-creations" of MLB Giants broadcasts for N.Y. listeners after the team moved to S.F., died Tuesday at the age of 89 (AP, 4/16). MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez writes, "Aided by his Western Union ticker reports, taped crowd noise, a drumstick and wooden block alongside his microphone, Keiter recreated Giants games using telegraph reports that brought the play-by-play into the WINS studio. He filled in the rest with description based on his best guess as to what was happening" (MLB.com, 4/16).
