1993 Studio Darryl Hamilton

Hobbies are golf and basketball: Hamilton was an avid golfer. He golfed every week with former Brewers teammate Pat Listach.

Favorite sports announcers are Bob Uecker and Vin Scully: As an announcer Hamilton occasionally filled in for Uecker on Brewers broadcasts.

Favorite player as a kid was Willie Mays: As a Giant Hamilton got outfield tips from Willie Mays.

Most prized possession is his Porsche 911 Turbo: Porsche has been making the 911 for over 50 years.

Might have been a radio announcer if he hadn’t been an athlete: Hamilton did do radio work for the Brewers.

Post playing career: Hamilton did both radio and TV broadcasting before he was killed in a murder-suicide in 2015.
