IN MEMORIAM

DALLAS GREEN
A Giant Among Men
BY MIAN A. JAN, MD, FACC, FSCAI

"Death is not extinguishing the flame, it is only
turning down the lamp because the dawn has
come."
- Rabindranath Tagore

T

hat brightest of flames was turned down on March
22nd, 2017.
It now seems like an eternity when I had my first
encounter with Dallas George Green. I was in the middle of
my office hours when I heard this booming voice which could
crack a concrete wall; my wife, Ambereen, had referred him for
cardiac evaluation. A lion's heart which kept going strong to
the end.
My first meeting with him in the exam room was even more
intimidating; he was six foot five inches tall but with his voice,
stature, and silver mane of hair looked like seven feet tall.
I have never played baseball and only learned the game as an
adult and as I got to know Dallas I realized he was one of the
immortals of the game.
I am not going to talk about his greatness as a player or
manager. He won the first world championship in 97 years
for Philadelphia, he won many accolades including executive
of the year. But I am going to talk about the man I became
friends with and took care of and learned to love like a brother.
Over the years as it frequently happens with my patients he
became a beloved friend; his wife Sylvia also became a friend,
and they visited us and attended many functions with us.
He arranged for my youngest son Zarshawn to come to the
Stadium and meet the players.
