Default RIP Sparky Anderson

The baseball world lost a legend today. He lived across the street from my college and was always up for a talk about baseball or anything else. He was a great guy and will be missed.

Sparky Anderson was the perfect combination, a great manager and an even better man - ESPN

I wore Sparky's number 10 back when I played Knothole ball back in the 70's His work with the Big Red Machine will be remembered (at least by me) for a long time to come.
RIP Sparky
