    in retrospect my post might have been overkill

    Yep, especially considering I said the same thing in under 10 words two hours before.

    Vera Clemente, the widow of former Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente, chairwoman of the Roberto Clemente Foundation, and Goodwill Ambassador for MLB died Saturday at age 78. RIP.

    weird but true:

    outlived by the widows of Jackie Robinson, Gil Hodges, and Buddy Holly - all of whose husbands died before Clemente did.

    Ryan Costello, an infielder prospect in the Minnesota Twins organization, was found dead in New Zealand at age 23. RIP



    Costello had arrived in Auckland last week to play his first season with the Auckland Tuatara, a team in the Australian Baseball League. In a news release, the Tuatara said "preliminary indications suggest he died of natural causes."

    Noren played minor league pro basketball (yes, basketball) with Jackie Robinson for the Los Angeles Red Devils, and seemed headed to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950 - except that the team had to sell 10 players to cover losses for their failed All-America Football Conference team of the same name.

    He got traded to the Yankees to start 1952 (DiMaggio had retired and Mantle was hurt).

    In 1955, he got thrown out of a game for arguing with an umpire and was replaced by Elston Howard - who thereby became the first player of color to play in a regular-season Yankees game.

    After 1956, he was assigned to the Yankees' AL farm team in Kansas City, called the Athletics - really the castoffs sent away so the Yankees could take better players from them. then on to the Cardinals, Cubs, and finally the Dodgers.

    you can see him on old video as the third base coach on the 1972-73 World Series winning Athletics (of all franchises). he got fired in mid-1974 so he didn't "three-peat."

    then he owned a bowling alley (later known as Astro Bowl in Clifton, NJ), liquor store, and sporting good stores - and bought some thoroughbred horses and hung around the track all day at Del Mar or Santa Anita. had a wife of 60 years, 4 kids, and at least 15 grandkids and six great-grandkids.

    a guy could do worse.

    Seymour Siwoff, owner of the Elias Sports Bureau — the official statistician of MLB among other leagues — died at age 99.

    As a teen, I eagerly awaited the day the Elias Baseball Analyst hit bookstore shelves in February. In those olden days, it was literally the only place to get in-depth prior season stats like splits. In college, my buddy put “Tome” stickers on my Elias collection, lol.
