Former Braves owner Bill Bartholomay, who moved team to Atlanta, dies

Former Braves owner Bill Bartholomay, who brought the team and major-league sports to Atlanta in 1966, died Wednesday night at age 91.

Bartholomay “died very peacefully” at New York-Presbyterian Hospital after “a brief illness,” his daughter Jamie Bartholomay Niemie said Thursday. Doctors described the illness as “a respiratory infection that was not the coronavirus COVID-19,” she said.

Bartholomay had been fighting an infection for several weeks and had gone to New York to see specialists, “but at 91 years old, I think he just got tired,” his daughter said softly. He battled and beat pneumonia before Christmas, she said.

The Braves, in a statement, described Bartholomay as “a dear, thoughtful friend whose presence will be missed” and whose legacy “will surely stand the test of time for the Atlanta Braves and all of baseball.”

Ex-Astros slugger Jimmy Wynn, nicknamed ‘Toy Cannon,’ dies at 78

Jimmy Wynn, the diminutive Houston Astros slugger whose monster shots in the 1960s and ‘70s earned him the popular nickname “The Toy Cannon,” has died. He was 78.

The Astros said Wynn, a three-time All-Star outfielder, died Thursday in Houston but did not provide further details.

Just 5-foot-9, Wynn was packed with power. He hit more than 30 homers twice with Houston, including a career-high 37 in 1967 at the pitcher-friendly Astrodome.

“Jimmy’s success on the field helped build our franchise from its beginnings,” the Astros said in a statement. “After his retirement, his tireless work in the community impacted thousands of young people in Houston. Although he is no longer with us, his legacy will live on at Minute Maid Park, at the Astros Youth Academy and beyond.”

Ted Cox, ex-Red Sox with hits in 1st 6 at-bats, dies at 65

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) — Ted Cox, the first major league player with hits in his first six at-bats, has died. He was 65.

Cox was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in November and died Wednesday at Hospice Quality Care in Midwest City, according to his son, Billy.

Cox was born in Oklahoma City, played at Midwest City High School and was selected by Boston with the 17th overall pick of the 1973 amateur draft.

“He really enjoyed coming up through the whole Boston farm system,” Billy Cox said Friday. “He got to brag quite a bit that he was coached by Ted Williams.”

Yankees to hold moment of silence for fallen female scout

TAMPA — The Yankees plan to hold a moment of silence to honor area scout Kelly Rodman, who died Wednesday.

Rodman was one of the few female scouts in the game. She represented the Yankees, alongside Nick Swisher, at the 2019 MLB Draft.

“‘I’ve never been discouraged of being a woman scout,” Rodman said in a video for the YES Network. “Or as I like to just say, a scout. I’m here to be a scout, to get the best players, to work in baseball, to do my thing. What do I say to young women and little girls? go for it. If you want to work in baseball, or if you want to work in another sport, just go for it. Do what you love. Be passionate about it. Go out. Do the work. Go to baseball games. Go talk to people about baseball. Talk to your dads. Talk to your moms. Read everything you can. I’m a student of the game. I’ve always been a student of the game. That’s how we learn. It’s nonstop.”

John Olerud’s daughter Jordan, born with a rare chromosome disorder, dies at 19

Jordan Olerud, the daughter of former MLB All-Star John Olerud, has died at 19 years old after living with a rare chromosome disorder since birth.

The heartbreaking news was confirmed in a tweet by Jay Horwitz, vice president of alumni public relations for the New York Mets, where Olerud played from 1997 to 1999.

...

Jordan, who was the middle child in the Olerud family, was born in August 2000 with a unique chromosome syndrome called tri-some 2p, 5p- which means she had an extra second chromosome and was missing part of her fifth chromosome.

As a result, Jordan didn’t reach milestones at the same time as other children her age and required special care from Olerud and his wife, Kelly.

Roth: Rochester’s Johnny Antonelli was an All-Star in baseball and in life

Today, Gus Antonelli would be known as a helicopter parent. The guy hovering over every move his child makes.

In 1948, that was Antonelli, who had immigrated to America from Abruzzo, Italy. Who was so proud of his son Johnny, so determined to help him succeed as a baseball pitcher, he would attend spring training lugging a scrapbook bulging with his son’s newspaper clippings and show them to Major League managers, scouts, fans, anybody who would listen.

Johnny Antonelli could hurl a baseball as smoothly as ice cream is dished on a hot summer’s day. He was a 6-foot-1 lefty who went 15-2 with five no-hitters during his career at Jefferson High School, averaging two strikeouts per inning. A teenage phenom in the Bob Feller mold.

Without the assistance of the internet or a sports performance academy, Johnny was on the radar of scouts thanks to his dad’s relentless advocating, but there was still a problem. Rochester springs are soggy and short and during Antonelli’s senior season at Jefferson, he appeared in only seven games.

Blue Jays legend Fernandez dies at 57

The baseball world lost a legend Saturday night.

Long-time Toronto Blue Jays infielder Tony Fernandez has died at age 57.

Earlier this month, Fernandez was in critical condition with a kidney disease. He had been battling kidney issues for several years. He was first hospitalized with polycystic kidney disease in 2017.

The Mayo Clinic’s website describes the disease as an inherited disorder where cyst clusters cause the kidneys to enlarge and lose function over time.

Gil Coan, original member of the 1954 Baltimore Orioles, dies at 97

Gil Coan, an original member of the 1954 Baltimore Orioles who recorded the team’s first hit, died Tuesday afternoon at the age of 97.

Coan was Major League Baseball’s third oldest living player. He played his best seasons on the Washington Senators, batting .303 in back-to-back seasons from 1950-1951.

Born in Monroe, North Carolina, Coan became a Brevard College baseball legend by the time he graduated in 1942. He was named “Minor League Player of the Year” by The Sporting News before playing on four teams in 11 seasons in the major leagues from 1946-1956.

After retiring from baseball at the age of 34, Coan returned to Brevard to run the Brevard Insurance Agency until his retirement in 1986.

Former Bassick, Ravens, MLB standout Angel Echevarria dies at 48

Angel Echevarria, the former Bassick High School baseball star who went on to play eight years in the major leagues, died Friday at Bridgeport Hospital. He was 48.

Echevarria, who ran his own business, Simply Baseball, out of The Factory in Norwalk, often gave free clinics to the youth of his native Bridgeport, where he was born in 1971 and still lived.

He was not feeling well this past week, and Friday fell and hit his head, according to his girlfriend of five years, Jazmine Cox. His cause of death was unknown according to Cox, who said Echevarria called her Friday after his fall in his Bridgeport home.

“He was caring and generous and loved working with children,” said Cox, who met Echevarria when the two worked at The Factory (formerly The Batter’s Box) in Norwalk. “He was always doing free clinics. He loved Bridgeport. Everyone will say he had a kind word for everyone. He was so giving, so generous, so full of life. He always wanted to give back. He would always say he grew up here, that Bridgeport made him who he was, and he was not going to leave.

In remembrance of ‘The Boys of Summer’ author Roger Kahn, who found beauty in the stories of underdo

In this house, I have three different hardback copies of Roger Kahn’s “The Boys of Summer.” I also have one on my Kindle and one in my iBooks collection. And yet, not more than three or four weeks ago, I was in a used bookstore, and I saw a paperback copy of the book, and I thought to myself: “I should probably buy that.” And so I did.

I simply need that book around me at all times.

Roger Kahn died Thursday. He was 92. I never met him. I got a note from him once, a nice note, and as I wrote on Twitter, it was like getting a message from Olympus. A few years later, his book publisher, Mark Weinstein, asked me to write a blurb for Roger’s last book, “Rickey & Robinson: The True, Untold Story of the Integration of Baseball.” It was like having Julius Erving ask me to endorse one of his dunks.

This is how I began that blurb:

“Roger Kahn’s classic, ‘The Boys of Summer,’ changed my life — that and ‘Catcher in the Rye’ were the two books that made me dream of becoming a writer.”

Nationals announce death of Phil Rizzo, Mike Rizzo’s father

Phil Rizzo, the father of Nationals President of Baseball Operations Mike Rizzo, has died, the team announced Saturday. He was 90 years old.

Phil was a senior advisor for his son in the Nationals’ front office. He played in the minor-leagues during the 1950s before hanging up the cleats and becoming a scout. A scout for over 40 years, Phil worked for nine different teams including both the Arizona Diamondbacks (1999-2005) and Nationals (2009-2020), both of which also employed his son at the time.

He was an inaugural member of the Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame, having been enshrined in 2008. Phil is credited with being the first scout to file a report on Kentucky standout Brandon Webb, who won the 2006 NL Cy Young Award in Arizona, and signing players such as Bob Wickman, Mike Matheny and Dick Schofield.

Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli died in Kobe helicopter crash

A single bouquet of flowers sat on home plate as dozens of Orange Coast College former and current baseball players and coaches, and their family members and friends filed into Wendell Pickens Field on the school’s Costa Mesa campus Sunday.

Under ominous gray skies, with an early afternoon chill in the air, they hugged each other tightly, cried on each others’ shoulders and prayed together as they tried to come to grips with the tragedy that claimed their baseball coach Sunday morning.

John Altobelli, 56, who guided the Pirates to four California community college state championships and racked up more than 700 victories in 27 seasons at Orange Coast, was among the nine victims in the helicopter crash that killed former Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

...

Altobelli was named national coach of the year by the American Baseball Coaches Association in 2019 and Orange Coast won state titles in 2019, 2015, 2014 and 2009. Yet what brought him the most joy, Johnson said, was seeing his players move on to Division I programs. Approximately 10 Pirates off last year’s state championship team received scholarships to four-year schools.

David Glass, former owner of the Kansas City Royals, has died, team says

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—David Glass, the former owner of the Kansas City Royals died last week, the team confirmed Friday. He was 84 years old.

Glass purchased the Royals in 2000 for $96 million and owned the team for 20 seasons. Before buying the team, Glass was a former president and CEO of Wal-Mart from 1988 to 2000.

Under Glass’s care, the Royals reached the World Series for the first time in 2014, losing in seven riveting games to the San Francisco Giants. They bounced back the next year to win another American League pennant and beat the New York Mets in the 2015 World Series.

Last November, Glass sold the team to local businessman John Sherman and a team of other investors.

George Nicolau dies at 94, arbitrator in MLB collusion cases

NEW YORK (AP) — George Nicolau, who ruled against baseball owners in two collusion cases and served as president of the National Academy of Arbitrators, has died. He was 94.

Nicolau died Jan. 2 at Lenox Hill Hospital, Gene Orza, the former chief operating officer of the Major League Baseball Players Association, said Friday.

Nicolau took over as the independent chairman of Major League Baseball’s arbitration panel in 1986 after owners fired Thomas Roberts, who ruled teams acted in concert against free agents after the 1985 season. Nicolau decided teams acted in concert against free agents after the 1986 and 1987 seasons. The cases were settled in 1990 when management agreed with the players’ union to pay those players affected $280 million.

In another notable decision, Nicolau decided in 1987 to cut short a season-long suspension of free agent pitcher LaMarr Hoyt to 60 days. Hoyt had been penalized for his involvement in three illegal drug incidents during 1986.

Hal Smith, author of his own huge home run in 1960, dies

Bill Mazeroski has always balked when asked if he’d hit the biggest home run in baseball history.

“Heck,” Maz would respond anytime I’d bring this up in Bradenton, “I didn’t even hit the biggest homer in that game”

Hal Smith, whose three-run home run for the Pirates in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series against the Yankees would be overshadowed an inning later by Maz’s legendary shot, died Thursday at age 89 in Columbus, Texas, a small town near Houston.

And yes, it was Mr. Smith’s home run that set the stage and, very nearly, stole it, on that magical fall day at Forbes Field half a century ago.

Don Larsen, who pitched only perfect game in World Series history, dies at 90

By his own admission, Don Larsen was a most imperfect fellow and therefore about the unlikeliest man to ever pitch the only perfect game in World Series history. But pitch it he did, on October 8, 1956, a 97-pitch, 2-0 gem in Game 5 that gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead in the Series against the Dodgers and set them up for winning their sixth world championship in eight years under manager Casey Stengel.

Larsen, 90, died Wednesday in hospice in Hayden, Idaho, of esophageal cancer, a party guy to the end who achieved baseball immortality that one sun-splashed autumn afternoon at Yankee Stadium despite an otherwise mediocre 81-91 pitching career with seven different major league teams from 1953-67. As it was, Larsen didn’t even think he was getting the ball that day after having been lifted by Stengel in the second inning of Game 2 of the Series because of control problems. He had given up only one hit in that game and was leading 6-1, but he’d walked four batters and the Yankees went on to lose, 13-8. Afterward, Larsen fumed to reporters: “I don’t give a damn if I ever pitch another game for the Yankees or Stengel again! I go out there and break my neck? For what? He had no business taking me out of there! That’s the last time I’ll get to bed early. I’m gonna start enjoying life again.”

Nevertheless, Stengel, who shrugged off Larsen’s diatribe, opted to give the big righthander — whose Yankee teammates dubbed “Gooney Bird” because of his flaky nature — a second chance three days later in Game 5, passing up 18-game winner Johnny Kucks (who went on to pitch the 9-0 Game 7 clincher). Whether it was just hunch on the part of Stengel — who secretly had a fondness for Larsen because of his own penchant for late-night imbibing — the prodigal pitcher vowed to make good for his manager. “I’ll show ‘em all,” he said when Stengel announced the day before Larsen would be starting Game 5. “Don’t be surprised if I pitch a no-hitter too.”

It was an oft-handed boast made jokingly to a handful of reporters, but one that Larsen more than made good on. Reverting to a “no-wind-up” delivery he had fashioned during the ’56 season (in which he’d been 11-5 as a starter and long reliever), he baffled the Dodgers all day and out-dueled veteran Sal Maglie, 2-0, striking out seven. About the only hard-hit ball the Dodgers had in the game was Gil Hodges’ one-out fly to deep left center in the fifth inning on which Mickey Mantle made a running, one-hand catch. Indeed, Larsen went to three balls on only one batter — Pee Wee Reese in the first — and when he got veteran pinch hitter Dale Mitchell on a half-swing third strike to end the game, Yankee catcher Yogi Berra rushed out from behind the plate and jumped into his arms in what became an iconic picture.

‘Grace, dignity and strength’: Pittsburghers mourn death of Vera Clemente, widow of Pirates legend

Vera Clemente, the Pirates’ matriarch and Roberto’s widow, enjoyed what was surely an emotional and long-awaited reunion with her husband on Saturday.

After she had been in “delicate health” since Nov. 1, Vera Clemente died of unknown causes in her native Puerto Rico, surrounded by family and friends. She was 81.

The loss was difficult to take for many Pirates fans, especially those who had idolized Roberto and, as a result, had gotten to know his wife; turns out empathy and philanthropy were not ideals only the baseball-playing half of the marriage carried.

Vera Clemente is survived by three sons: Roberto Clemente Jr., Luis Roberto Clemente and Roberto Enrique Clemente.

Ron Fairly, who starred with USC, Dodgers and Angels, dies at 81

Ron Fairly, the reliable, red-haired outfielder and first baseman who spent more than five decades in baseball —21 years as a player, first with the Dodgers and lastly with the Angels, and 30 more as a broadcaster— died Wednesday in Indian Wells, Calif., after a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 81.

A graduate of Long Beach Jordan High School and a former USC standout, Fairly played his first 11 ½ years (1958-69) in the big leagues with the Dodgers, helping the team to three World Series championships, and he closed his playing career with the Angels in 1978.

“The worst day in a baseball uniform,” Fairly wrote in a 2018 memoir that he co-authored with former Times sportswriter Steve Springer, “was better than the best day I could have had in any other career.”

Fairly turned down a basketball scholarship from UCLA’s John Wooden and went to USC instead. He played only one season with the Trojans, hitting .348 with a team-high nine homers and 67 RBIs as a sophomore center fielder to help USC win the 1958 national championship.

Former MLB and two-time World Series umpire Chuck Meriwether dies at 63

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former major league umpire Chuck Meriwether, who was behind the plate when the Boston Red Sox ended their championship drought in 2004, died Saturday. He was 63.

Commissioner Rob Manfred made the announcement hours before Game 4 of the World Series. Meriwether had been ill with cancer and died at home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Meriwether called his first big league game in 1987, was promoted to the full-time American League staff in 1993 and worked for 18 years. He then became a major league umpire supervisor for nine years.

Meriwether had the plate in Game 4 when the Red Sox ended their 86-year title absence by beating St. Louis at Busch Stadium. He also did the 2007 World Series when Boston swept Colorado.
