Re: Did Steve Stewart have any last words or comments?
Marty's first inning comments choked Steve up visibly... well, as visible as you can get with radio. I don't think Steve was expecting his "farewell" until the end of the game so he was taken by surprise.
Marty told him that he'd been a class act to work with and sort of apologized for him having been thrown into a tough situation... said he handled it with a lot of class. He also told him that he'd love to work with him again somewhere down the road if the situation ever presented itself. There was more but I can't remember it.
Steve tried to respond but couldn't get the words out... he asked Marty to excuse him while he got himself together. He was extremely choked up. It was bittersweet.
I will miss him. I really liked his style.
I'm wondering how he's going to find something else if he plans on staying in Cincinnati.
