Just found this on Yahoo Sports. Bonda is the man who hired Frank Robinson as the first black manager in the majors, and apparently used his own money to keep the Cleveland Indians from moving to another city.

Link to the story below.

Wow, sounds like he was a really good owner for the Cleveland frachise. Baseball lost a good man.
