Noted Major League Baseball figure Don Zimmer passed away on June 04, 2014, at the age of 83.
Zimmer was a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers, and for other teams including the New York Mets, manager of the Boston Red Sox, and bench coach for the New York Yankees during their run of four championships in five seasons... and that's hardly all, folks!
Oh, yes... and, during his Yankee stint, a memorable confrontation with Boston Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez. We all gasped and held our breath at the sight of that! Thankfully, he was okay!
Don Zimmer was beloved by baseball fans everywhere, and for more reasons than I can count!
He will be missed.
