Presentation to Culver City Council

Monday, February 27, 2012

by Charles and Susan Deen


In remembrance of Baseball Hall of Famer




Born April 8, 1954 – Culver City, California

Died February 16, 2012 – Palm Beach, Florida


These few words penned by Bart Giamatti* in 1977 seem most appropriate.

We quote from …The Green Fields of the Mind


It breaks your heart.  


It is designed to break your heart.


The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again,

and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings,


and then as soon as the chill rains come,

it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.


You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time,

to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive,


and then just when the days are all twilight,

when you need it most, it stops.


The Culver City Council adjourned in memory.


*Angelo Bartlett Giamatti (1938–1989)

Yale University President (1978–1986)  -  National League President (1986–1989)

Commissioner of Baseball April 1, 1989 to September 1, 1989
