The Tribune's Bob Vanderberg has an excellent column on his recollections of former ML'er (and ChiSoxer) Bob Kennedy who passed away last week at the age of 84. My condolences to the family & friends of Bob Kennedy. R.I.P. Bob, and thanks for the memories.

Guy had an amazing life. I wonder what this line meant: "After his retirement in 1957, Kennedy was working for the Cleveland playgrounds..."

I assume he meant the Cleveland park & rec department.

My condolences to the friends and relatives of the Kennedy family as well. An interesting side note, his son Terry made two trips to the World Series, in 1984 with the Padres and 1989 with the Giants. Anybody remember who those guys had to go through to represent the NL those years?:D:

RIP Bob

If you're lucky enough to have the physical copy of the Tribune Sports (as opposed to the online internet version) there is a great photo accompanying the article showing Bob Kennedy and Jim Landis in old Comiskey Park circa 1957!

A great shot of two great players from a by-gone era.
