In Memory of Jack Buck – Editorial Writing

Below was a one-off opportunity to write an editorial piece. When Jack Buck, the legendary radio broadcaster for the St. Louis Cardinals, died in 2002, my editors offered me the chance to write a column to remember him. I was honored because he was somewhat of a hero to me and I’d had the opportunity to “shadow” him for an evening in 1994, when I was a senior in high school. This was my remembrance of that night. I had so much more to share, but space was limited. Yet, I’m thankful for the opportunity.
