  • RIP Del Crandall

    Outstanding catcher who won 4 Gold Gloves for the great Milwaukee Braves teams of the 1950s has died at age 91. Crandall played in 8 All Star games and after his playing days were over he managed the Brewers and Mariners. He was the last living player of the old Boston Braves who moved to Milwaukee in 1953.

      Yes, from 1985 to1988, he was Lorn Brown's sidekick.

        At my first reporting job, I wrote an obituary for a man named Del Crandall who died in Bullhead City, Arizona in 1982. My editor asked me if this was the baseball Del Crandall. Of course, his DOB didn't check out. Later when visiting Chicagoland, I heard the baseball guy doing Sox games on the radio. With all that so long ago, this news surprises me.
