The late Dick Schaap died last
December at age 67 after hip-replace-
ment surgery. The highly respected
sportscaster and journalist is credited
with making the Michigan Jewish
Sports Foundation's (MJSF) annual
Hank Greenberg Memorial Golf &
Tennis Invitational a tremendous suc-
Schaap got involved through
Greenberg's son, Steve, who was an
sioner of Major
According to MJSF
"Dick spent so
many June days at
Tam 0' Shanter
[for the Greenberg
some people there
thought he was a
member. For 11
years, he served as
the honorary co-
"His devotion to the event, his
ingness to impose on his celebrity
friends to attend and his genial warmth
and friendliness to all who attended has
unquestionably been the single most
important factor in our success."
The tournament has raised more than
$100,000 each year for the Hank
Greenberg Oncology Fund at the
Detroit Medical Center.
Writer Mitch Albom, in his introduc-
tion to Schaap's autobiography, wrote:
"He has walked with kings, ridden shot-
gun with legends, dined with the power
elite and gotten drunk with some of the
biggest sports stars of our time.
"And what he comes away with is not
a swelled head, an inflated sense of his
own importance, or a need to lecture
the world with an opinion much richer
than ours. What he comes away with
are stories." ❑
