R.I.P Don Zimmer

The title of Don Zimmer's book Zim: A Baseball Life is a great way to sum up Don Zimmer's life. 66 of his 83 years of life were spent in professional baseball. Playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Cincinnati Reds and Washington Senators.

Don Zimmer managed the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, and the Chicago Cubs. He coached the Montreal Expos, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies, and Tampa Bay Rays.

He was old school and I don't think I will ever forget this game...

Here is a tribute to him..

He was involved with a lot of history of the game, he was knowledgeable of the game, and was a link in the games history. He will be missed may he rest in peace.
