  • Former Athletics player Charlie Metro passes away

    If legends are made by the number of stories told about them, Charlie Metro qualifies hands down.

    Metro also was a great storyteller, particularly when it came to talking about his 47 years in baseball. His spectrum included managing stops with the Denver Bears, Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals.

    Metro, 91, died Friday in Buckingham, Va., of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer. Services were in Buckingham and a Celebration of Life is scheduled April 9 in Denver. He had operated a ranch northwest of Arvada and raised quarter horses until three years ago, when he moved to Buckingham.

    I am sad to hear of Charlie Metro's death. SAFE AT HOME is a terrific read.. Metro was the Forrest Gump of baseball in that he witnessed more than just about anyone.
