  • Buzzy Bavasi

    My sources are telling me that Buzzy Bavasi died today at the age of 93. That is a big loss to Brooklyn fans everywhere.

    While on the one hand you have to think that 93 years of good health and being mentally sharp all the way to the end is a deal we would all take. But everytime a Brooklyn Dodger leaves, that golden era gets further and further away.

    Rest in peace Buzzie, you created a lot of great memories for my new friends on this board and I love the stories they share with me.

      I read somewhere that Buzzie was unhappy about moving. I think without buzzie, the big o' would not have been nearly as sucessful as he was. After Buzzie left, it took them five years to win a pennant, with many players from, the buzzie days. God bless ya' Buzzie, rest in peace. battlin bake, the dodger dynamo

        It's ironic that Buzzy turned out to be a bigot.

          How did Buzzy become a bigot? Are you confusing Buzzy with Al Campanis? Does a single verbal lapse make a person a bigot?

            ? I've never heard anything hinting at this.

                Think he means Campanis.

                    Well, there's a text book example of why you should NOT rely on blogs for your news and information. It was a difficult endeavour slogging through that tourtured mess just to find Bavasi's name. He too doesn't know Bavasi from Campanis.

                    FYI:
                    Buzzy Bavasi's had a sterling reputation as a decent man, not just a baseball man.

                      A bigot is one intolerant of any opinions differing from his own. By that definition Buzzie was a classic bigot. Hell, some of the most "decent" people are bigots.

                        What exactly did Bavasi do? Because whoever "Uncle Sam" is, he attributed Campanis's comments erroneously to Bavasi. Campanis made those comments in a national interview, not Bavasi. I watched that interview, it was on 20/20 I believe. So that certainly doesn't make Bavasi a bigot, just very unfortunately misattributed, typical of the great majority of blogs.

                          I don't think you get it. It was Campanis who said that, not Bavasi.

                            The quotes the blogger attributes to Buzzy Bavasi were NOT said by Buzzy Bavazi. The statements he quotes were said by Dodger GM Al Campanis. Al Campanis IS NOT Buzzy Bavasi. Buzzy Bavasi was gone from the Dodger organization for 20 years when AL CAMPANIS said those things.
                            The blogger is ill-informed. He can't even properly quote AL CAMPANIS'S ignorant statements correctly and he credits poor Buzzy with signing Jackie Robinson. (He didn't)

                            You know, the guy just died after living a GOOD life. Don't you think he deserves NOT to have his name slandered ?

                              Easy, folks. musial6 is a good and solid contributor to these boards, not a troublemaker. He made an honest mistake by following a poor source of information. I'm sure he gets it now.
