After graduating, Halsey frequently visited Central at the assemblies. He was quoted as saying, "I was in the last freshman class at the old Central . . . and the first sophomore class in the new building." He wrote sports for several different Twin Cities Newspapers, including the Tribune, the St. Paul Dispatch, and the Star. As a radio and television figure he was a member of the Twins broadcasting team. Directly following his retirement, he was made "Ambassador of Baseball" by Twins president Calvin Griffith. He died at the age of 79.
