Tober-Tird, Two Tousand Twelve

This is my cousin, Douglas MacArthur Greenwald.  His father, Hank Greenwald, was a disciple of the great general who famously said, "Old baseball announcers never die, they just get ... older." Or something like that.

Doug was born in Austrailia, October 3, 1974.   A few years later in 1977, Doug was conducting one of his first interviews (of me) and I asked him when his birthday was.  He replied, "Tober-Tird" and I have remembered and acknowledged that for the 35 years since.

Happy Birthday, Doug!

The Giants supplied Doug with a great tirdy-eighth birthday gift ... a division pennant and at least one more week of baseball!
