has passed away, yet anohter big blow to Reds history, and a loss of a great man. I had the pleasure of sitting next to him for 2 Spring Training games 3 or 4 years ago, and being able to listen to his stoires, pick his brains, etc was one of the greatest baseball experiences I have ever had.

In the ORG, they mentioned that things like this traditionally come in threes. I guess whoever said that was right.

this is very sad news....Chief would always make it out to the caravan and even though he wouldnt say much, he would get a nice hand and sign every autograph....
