    Darn.
    He was my highest rated TSB 2019 player. I watched him on home run derby the other day against Hank Aaron.
    He seemed like a nice dude. My grandpa watched him play in person at a game in Kansas City (Tigers vs A's). That's when the A's were still in KC.

    obit

    I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

    I don't understand the "senseless" statement 🤔

    Maybe there’s something to Monte’s comment. Could have something to do with the number 85.

    He was 85 when he passed away.  This virus is just a bitch.  Just so senseless.

    He was 85 years old, recently had a stroke, and the cause of death hasn't been released. 🧐 I know I'm insensitive with these things, but an 85 year old with a recent stroke makes a lot of sense to me 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I drove to the other side of the state for a free signing he did annually for his buddies car dealership... he was genuinely nice, made everyone wait a little bit longer when a kid would be in front of him as he made sure he would chat with the youngin for a bit more than "hi, let me sign something for you, k bye". He loved talking to them about baseball and their passions.  I would hear others talking about his personality while we waited forever, and it seemed this was his status quo in every event he did.

    I have some memorabilia in my office from other athlete signings, his always stands out. Glad I have a ball with his name on it in my office.

    I think he meant it was senseless that Glu didn’t give us a new sticker to commemorate the great Al Kaline.
