Don Zimmer, 1931-2014: R.I.P.

The colorful, much-traveled baseball lifer has died at 83.

Man spent 65 years in baseball. I remember him as the manager of the Boston Red Sox in 1978 when Bucky Dent sent one over the Big Green Monster and broke Boston's heart. Managed the Cubs into the playoffs, was Joe Torre's bench coach on 4 World Series teams...what a great character and ambassador for baseball.
