Sparky Anderson dead at age 76

The Associated Press is reporting former Tigers manager Sparky Anderson died at his home in California today at the age of 76. Rest In Peace.

First Ernie, now Sparky. The connections to the Tigers of my youth are starting to move on. You always expect it, but sad nonetheless.

I don't know what we can add to the story that hasn't been said yesterday but we'll see what we can come up with later today.

Well I guess there's one thing to say: Time to retire that No. 11 jersey that should have been retired long ago, OK Tigers?
