R.I.P. Sparky Anderson

I grew up not only a baseball fan, but a huge fan of two teams - the Cincinatti Reds and the Detroit Tigers.  One thing they had in common is that they both won World Series under the same manager, Sparky Anderson.  My earliest memories of baseball are filled with Pete Rose's line drives, Joe Morgan's arm twitch, and Sparky Anderson's white hair and great smile.  Baseball has lost a legend today and one of the greatest managers of all time.
