RIP Sparky

MSNBC’s website just announced that Sparky Anderson died today. He was a Hall of Fame manager who retired as the third winningest manager in MLB history. He was also the first manager to win the World Series with a team from both leagues. He led the 1975-6 Cincinnati Reds to back-to-back championships, then took the Detroit Tigers to the 1984 title. He was 76.

RIP Sparky.

    I remember Sparky had one of the quickest hooks of any manager of his era. Starting pitchers seldom tossed complete games on his watch. He was kind of ahead of his time in how he used his bullpen.
    Rest in Peace, Sparky Anderson
