What a sad day. I loved listening to him talk ball. I remember an interview when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. He wanted to go in with a double billed hat with the Reds on one side and the Tigers on the other. MLB wouldn't let him. He was almost in tears having to choose.

Good old Sparky. Great guy. I remember when he played second base for the triple A Toronto Maple Leafs in the early 60's.
