“I refuse to call a 52 year old man Sparky.” – Umpire Al Clark about Sparky Anderson

Man, it seems like just yesterday that I was talking about how Sparky was put into hospice care due to complication from dementia. This has been a rough year for baseball. Ernie Harwell. Robin Roberts. Bobby Thomson. George Steinbrenner. Bob Sheppard, Mike Cuellar. Gene Hermanski. Ralph Houk. Jose Lima. Jim Bibby.

Now Sparky Anderson.

Rest in peace, Captain Hook.
