Glenn Sample Passes at age 77

The Official Scorer of the Reds passed away last night.  He'd been on the job for 29 years, and even though he's not someone most people are familiar with, I was a little saddened at the news.  I met Sample back in high school and only got to talk to him for a couple of minutes but he was a very gracious man.  Strangely that short meeting with him always left me kind of rooting for him.  Thinking on it now, all I can think is, that's weird.

Sample was also the head baseball coach at the University of Cincinnati for 21 years.  He still holds the record for most wins, with an overall record of 391-333-7.

In unrelated news, but something that might add a little more meat to this FanPost(tm), I invite you to read the story of Squeaky Parker.  It's nice to hear the Reds taking care of one of their own even when they aren't obligated to.
