FREDDY SAYS, GOODBYE:
Freddy 'Sez', a Yankee Stadium staple for the last 20 years, dead at age 82 (Bill Price, 10/17/10, NY DAILY NEWS)
At almost every Yankee game, Freddy could be seen outside Yankee Stadium with his daily message for the Yanks and a frying pan he banged like a drum. He also let other fans bang it as well.
He became such an institution that his lucky frying pan and spoon, thanks to Frantz, were put into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Yogi Berra museum in 2004.
He was no Sign Guy, but NPR did a sweet story on him last year Posted by Orrin Judd at October 17, 2010 4:51 PM
