It is Jackie Robinson Day today across MLB, and Jackie's widow, 99-year-old Rachel, is in attendance at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles tonight.  At her age anything can happen, but given that she's able to attend, I'd say that's a good sign, and she looks pretty good for someone who is 99.  

 

Still a good name to consider for 2023 lists, but I hope she makes it a few more years, like one of my great aunts did who made it to 105.

Picked by Reptile's C Team in the DDP. If he QOs, probably means any youngish death of a World Series winner is QO gold?

Pretty lousy and non-distinguished pitcher, would be stunning to QO but if it’s a slow news Sunday never say never.

On the other hand baseball was still a major part of the us national zeitgeist in the early 90's,so even fringe names from the early 90's Twins might be enough for a Daily Mail copy pasta for clicks

West becomes the SIXTH former Philadelphia Phillies player to die of brain cancer over the past 20 years.  Coincidence?

I recall a similar thing about the Kansas City Royals from the 1970-1990 era.

Win Remmerswaal, who pitched for the Boston Red Sox in 1979-1980, dead at 68. List of the Missed on DDP for my Rolls Off The Tongue team in 2021. I deliberately took him off as I thought there was no way he’d get UK obit.

Captain H - I love the name of that team, sorry I hadn’t noticed it before.
