A word about Sparky Anderson (1934-2010)


The great Sparky Anderson died in 2010.   He was born on this day in 1934 and inducted to The Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000.

Sparky managed the Big Red Machine in the 1970's and then Detroit until the mid-90's.

Anderson led Cincinnati to 4 NL pennants and the series in 1975 & 1976.   He led the Tigers to a series win in 1984 & AL East title in 1987.  He was one of the most successful managers ever: .545 winning pct!

And a wonderful baseball analyst in post season baseball.   He worked on radio and TV.    I specifically remember his radio work in the 1983 World Series.
