Rest In Peace, Skipper

Chuck Tanner has died at the age of 82.  While most will know him as the manager of the 1979 “We Are Family” Pirates.  I will always remember him as the skipper of the White Sox teams that I first grew up idolizing.

Cy Acosta, Bucky Dent, Dick Allen, Bill Melton, Terry Forster, Jim Kaat, Jorge Orta.  They were’nt pretty (well the red pinstripes were actually pretty sharp), but they were my team, and Chuck Tanner was their manager.

RIP Coach.
