RIP Ray Fosse

#1 Post by Vandal » Wed Oct 13, 2021 9:12 pm

Ray Fosse, longtime MLB catcher and announcer, dies at 74 after 16-year battle with cancer

Fosse enjoyed a 12-year career in the majors as a catcher. He broke into the big leagues with Cleveland in 1967 and he later made the All-Star Game in 1970 and 1971. Fosse's inclusion in the 1970 contest has become ingrained in the sport's memory because of Pete Rose's decision to barrel over Fosse. That collision left Fosse with a fractured and dislocated shoulder -- injuries that plagued him the rest of his career, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. ... th-cancer/

I noticed a mathematical oddity in this post and some other recent obituaries. Fosse is 74 and was born in 1947. It occurs when the sum of the digits of the person's age is 11 (Jane Powell, 92, 1929; Roger Michell, 65, 1956). The explanation is that 2021 = 1900 + 11x11 (RIP Christie).
