  • Stan Saleski, Jeff Taylor and Jerry Lumpe, former Yankees figures, pass away

    Jeff Taylor scouted for the Yanks. He was called "one of the most respected scouts in baseball." He died in November, but his death was not reported in this forum.

    The essence and character of Jeff Taylor, a man beloved by family, friends and the baseball community, can be traced to a baseball field at Newark High School more than 40 years ago.

    Taylor, a longtime scout working for the Cincinnati Reds most recently as a special assistant to the general manager, passed away from cancer Monday, leaving an indelible impact on the sport.

    He developed a passion for baseball growing up as a Philadelphia Phillies fan and that love for the game never waned, even when his playing career ended.
