Earlier this week we got the sad news that Jim Fregosi had suffered a stroke while on an MLB cruise. Today MLB.com reported that Fregosi has passed away at age 71.
Here is Fregosi at the 2013 Phillies Alumni weekend which honored the 1993 NL championship club which he helmed.
Jim Fregosi brought a lot of fun to this town, I enjoyed his humor and honesty while he was the Phillies Manager. I was in my middle 20s when the Phillies had that magical season. It was an era when I learned a lot about baseball and Jim Fregosi was a key figure in that education.
