Buzzie Bavasi dies at 92

buzzie Emil “Buzzie” Bavasi, former general manager and baseball executive, died Thursday at the age of 92. 

He helped the Dodgers to their first World Series championship in 1955 (their only one in Brooklyn) plus three more in LA.  In addition he brought the Angels to the playoffs twice. 

I seem to remember Bavasi being on the ‘A’ list of nominees for the 2007’s ballot of the Hall of Fame.

The LA Times has an excellent obit and bio
