Just call Dodgers announcer Charley Steiner 'doctor'

Dodgers radio play-by-play announcer Charley Steiner will get an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree Dec. 18 from his alma mater, Bradley University, where he will also be the keynote speaker at the mid-year commencement ceremonies.

Steiner, who graduated from Bradley in 1971, has been the Dodger play-by-play voice on radio for six years.

"We are honored to have such an accomplished alumnus like Charley Steiner address our graduates," Bradley President Joanne Glasser said.  "We strive to bring speakers of national stature to inspire our students with their passion, wisdom and life experiences. I am confident that Charley will offer memorable reflections to our graduates and their families as they celebrate this important milestone in their lives."

Steiner isn't the only popular local sports voice to have graduated from Bradley. Los Angeles Clippers' television play-by-play caller Ralph Lawler also graduated from the Illinois school.
