REST IN PEACE: AL DARK: 1922-2014


Jan. 7, 1922- Nov. 13, 2014

Just got wind that long-time Major League player and manager Al Dark passed away at the age of 92.
There was a nice write-up on MLB.COM:

http://m.mlb.com/news/article/101340706/alvin-dark-dies-at-92

A Rookie of the Year in 1948, and two-time World Series manager, in 1962 with the Giants and 1974 with the Oakland A's, Dark put in some serious time in Major League ball. A true "Lifer".
Check out his stats as a player, you may find them surprising. He was a solid player over 14-years playing for the Braves, Giants, Cardinals, Cubs and Phillies.
Rest in peace "Swamp Fox"...
