I’ve just learned my dearest friend Calvin Haywood passed away, I can’t believe I’m even saying this.
We were like brothers, Push it, send him, watch the puck Maddie, whooooo? I’m sitting down don’t hurt me, The deep pool is now open, don’t let me beat you, so many Calvinisms to name a few. Please add to them.
Just can’t believe it.”

Calvin was an Award-winning television sports director with over thirty years of experience working in studios and on location, displaying a passion for/extensive knowledge of sports, a comfort with the many aspects of television production, an ability to work efficiently and harmoniously within a team, an ability to lead, and a professional focus in high-stress situations.

Bruce Apar is already heartbroken to hear Calvin’s death as he pens down heartfelt condolence on YES Network Facebook page:

He said “Lovely tribute to pioneering TV sports producer Calvin Haywood. However, it should be noted that the expression “the mold was broken” was improperly used in the tribute’s wording.

It was curiously preceded by “Sadly,” which wrongly implies “the mold was broken” refers to someone’s demise. It’s quite the opposite.

The expression typically invokes the Creator (“When God made him, he broke the mold”) and refers to somebody whose destiny it is to be a trailblazer, an original unlike anybody else. Like Calvin Haywood.”

He worked as a Director under YES Network in 2005 – Dec 2009 a job he did for 5 years

As a Freelance Director on NY Yankees pre/post games, NJ Nets Pre/post and halftimes.

He has worked as a studio director with ABC and ESPN and also in Wimbledon Studio Coverage on Location in England, also as an NBA Shootaround Location director.
