I, too, remember Les Keiter, beginning with the first game in California that Ruben Gomez pitched and won 8-0 against the Bums. Keiter's "broadcasts" (at 11:15PM invariably began "Hi there again baseball fans, and welcome to Giants baseball. Seals Stadium, San Francisco, and Game tooooooo of a three game series between the Giants and the Cardinals" and there was the long fly ball: "boom! up against the fence" and Mays rounding the bases "and you should see him run!" Is Les still living in Hawaii?

Thanks George.

When I was writing that article, I got the inclination to hear a re-created broadcast. Les or the Giants was what I wanted but any one would do. The man who sells them wanted 25 bucks so I declined. I might revisit that desire.

Les is still living in Hawaii. He was great to talk to.
