So Long, Ray

Ray Sadecki passed away on November 17th from complications of blood cancer.
He was a young 73.

He was a very good pitcher over 18 seasons for the Cardinals, Giants, Mets, Braves, Royals and Brewers.
Sadecki helped the Cardinals beat the Yankees in the 1964 World Series, after winning 20 games for them during the season.

He was also a great signer of autographs through the mail.
Ray signed 3 cards for me back in 2010, returning them in 8 days, which was about his standard.
He was also very kind to answer a few personal questions for me.

A genuinely nice guy, Ray Sadecki.
