    Gene Stick Michael dies at age 79

    Player, manager and FO exec., class act and responsible in part for the dynasty teams.

    Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson on Stick: "we lost a legend. He is an important to this franchise as most anyone out in Monument Park."

    Buck Showalter: "Gene Michael saw things with his eyes, with his heart and with his gut that people can't even begin to grasp."

    Michael played for the Yanks from 1968-1974, having his best season in 1969 hitting .272 with 24 doubles, 41 runs, and 31 RBI in 412 at bats, in 119 games. His defensive prowess manifested itself in pulling off the rarest of feats – the hidden ball trick – five times during his career.

    Imo one of the most brilliant evaluators of talent to ever be involved with baseball operations.

    Rest in peace.

    No, can you explain it again?

    Apparently sarcasm isn't something you learned in life.

    Thank you for your service. I truly mean it. A lot of my family has served as well.

    This might be the first serious post I've ever made towards you. Ha
