:( Sad day . We lose another great ball player . Seems to many , now to me ? Frank might have been the most under rated player i can think off in a long time . One tough ball player & worst trade the Reds ever made ! ROTY in 1956, NL M.V.P in 1961 , AL M.V.P in 1966 & triple crown award winner , also the W S M.V.P vrs the Dodgers , all so won a ALL * STAR game M.V .P award .1st Black manager with the Indains. In his 1st game came in as a pinch hitter & hit a game winner HR for them. Also won A L manager of the year in 1989 for the O's. Went on to manage the Nat"s for a few years & also worked in the MLB office's for years ! Frank, { RIP } . You will be missed .
