  • I pulled this picture out of my archives the other day when I heard that former Cubs manager Don Zimmer had passed away at the age of 83. I know he was a player, coach and manager for a lot of teams, but I'll always think of him as a Cub and as my favorite all-time manager. I used to love it when he'd take a right-handed reliever, for instance, off the mound and put him in right field to bring on a lefty for one batter, then put the righty back on the hill. Plus I met him at Pickles Deli in Clearwater a year or two after he'd been fired while my brother and I were having lunch and he was eating with Mel Stottlemeyer. He Couldn't have been nicer and more gracious to indulge me in some baseball talk. He was the best. PERSPECTIVE is a weekly photo column by the Daily Herald's Fox Valley photo staff.
