RIP Gerry Staley

It's just come to my attention that Gerry Staley has passed away. He was a vital part of the 1959 AL championship team. Gerry revitalized his career as a reliever after his starts began to suffer.

Sox Machine has a great article on Gerry. There is another good article from his local paper in Clark County, Washington. There is also an interesting article from the Chicago Tribune.

Gerry was on the mound when the Sox clinched the AL title in 1959. If I had the chance, I would have thanked Gerry for his service on the White Sox. Gerry will not be forgotten anytime soon.
