Sportscaster honors Robin Williams during sports highlights (Video)

Robin Williams shocked the world in a sad way on Monday night when he died at the age of 63. Williams, an avid San Fransisco Giants fan, was honored by the organization in a pre-game video at Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

Williams spent his time cheering for the Giants since the 1980′s and since then has been an ambassador greeting them a spring training, giving pump up speeches at games like the 2010 NLDS against Atlanta and joining the dugout in 2002 against Anaheim.

On Tuesday night, Zach Klein of WSB-TV in Atlanta paid his respects to Robin Williams referenced 22 of Williams’ films while going through his normal rounds of baseball highlights.

Klein began by saying, “For those of you who suffer from Insomnia, Saturday’s Braves game was perfect for you.” And it was all smiles from there as titles like “Hook,” “Happy Feet,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and using “Jumanji” as an exclamatory term. The tribute to Williams was priceless, hats off to you, Mr. Klein.
