One of the nicest human beings I have ever met.

What he did with the Pawtucket franchise made him one of the most beloved figures in Minor League Baseball

It is with profound sadness that the PawSox family announces the passing of Pawtucket Red Sox owner Ben Mondor. Ben passed away peacefully last evening at his home in Warwick Neck, RI at the age of 85.

He was an incredible and charitable man who was first and foremost devoted to his wife Madeleine, along with his PawSox family and the entire community at large.

Funeral arrangements and further details will be announced later today.
