I just found out in a article posted on Yahoo that the man who played the manager for probably the funniest baseball movie of all time James Gammon passed away at the age of 70.
According to the article Gammon was fighting a 2nd bout with Cancer that could not be treated with surgery or chemo so he decided to come home and do hospice.Â He was a great actor that for me will always be remembered as Lou Brown the Cleveland Indians manager in the movie Major League. If you haven’t seen it or even if you have I recommend checking it out. One of my favorite lines is when he gets tired at ownership’s cost cutting measures and says, “I’ve had it with this nickel and dime stuff! I want that b*tch on the phone!”
My heart goes out to his family & friends.
