  • Harley Hisner and Dick Bresciani, former Red Sox figures, pass away

    Harley Hisner pitched in the Red Sox system from 1947 to 1952. He made one appearance with the Sox, in 1951. He gave up Joe DiMaggio's final big league hit.

    Fort Wayne baseball legend H. Parnell Hisner died Friday afternoon at age 88 after a recent bout with cancer.

    A 1976 inductee into the Northeast Indiana Baseball Association's Hall of Fame, Hisner was also a board member for the organization for 12 years and in 2010 received the Colin Lister Award for "dedication to the game of baseball and its historic legacy."
