I don't really follow baseball and I know who this guy is. Sad....

I believe the truly impressive part of this is that not only do you not follow baseball, but you don't live in either of the cities where Sparky managed. In spite of this, you still know who he is.

But, yes, his passing is sad for all of us who are left behind.
