Tony Fernandez, Dead at 57

Tony Fernandez

Tony Fernandez was 57.  I loved Tony Fernandez. He was on the team when I started paying attention back in 1983 and he was a key part of our first pennant winning team in 1985. He was awesome with the glove, but he could hit for average as well. Always a fan favourite, he enjoyed his first stint from 1983-1990, came back to help us win a World Series in 1993, played his third stint from 1998-1999 and made one last stop in Toronto in 2001 before retiring.

Here's what I wrote about Tony back in 2008.
