Rest in Peace - Sparky Anderson
Hall of Fame baseball manager Sparky Anderson passed away today. Anderson lead the Reds and Tigers to the World Series five times winning three championships. He was respected by his teams as a player's manager who could be firm when necessary. He was also an optimist who would often (wrongly) declare in spring training that some young prospect (Howard Johnson, Matt Nokes, etc) was the next big superstar.
Rest in Peace.
