          Former Kansas City Athletics right-handed pitcher, Bob Spicer has passed away at the age of 90. He pitched professionally for three organizations over 15 years (1947-1961), but the Athletics were the only team to give him a chance to show what he could do in the majors. Spicer pitched in a total of 4 games (all in relief) for Kansas City in 1955 and 1956. He was in the Chicago Cubs organization for 8 years, from 1947 to 1954, with the Athletics organization for five years from 1955 to 1959, and he finished his career with two years in the Philadelphia Phillies farm system through 1961. He would have turned 91 on April 11. Outside of his baseball life, Sspicer resided most of his years in Virginia and North Carolina.

                  Is Charlie O still alive? Lol
                  I think it says a lot about the KC years when you glance at the 4 HOFers on the above list.
                  Lasorda, Larussa, and Herzog are in as managers
                  Jackson became a HOFer in Oakland.
                  27 World Championships
                  22 retired numbers
                  Isn't it great to be a Yankee fan?

                          Former Kansas City Athletics player Manny Jimenez has passed away per Baseball Reference.com

                          Manny had a solid rookie season in 1962 but never really lived up to that promise shown again. I read somewhere that Charlie Finley wanted Jimenez to swing for home runs after he jumped out to a solid start as a contact, line drive hitter. This had the effect of messing up a nice swing and Manny never really developed into either a contact or a power hitter.
