RIP Freddy Sez

Freddy “Sez” Schuman, the New York Yankees undisputed #1 fan, died yesterday at the age of 85.

Damnit.

Really, that’s all you can say at this point. George, Bob, Hank, and now Freddy. He may have “only” been a fan, but he was arguably the biggest fan of any team in America and IS a Yankees icon. Hell, I’d say he’s a big enough name in Yankee folklore to put a patch on the cap or another black band on the uniform.

It’s a shame the man didn’t get to live longer to see another possible World Series in the Bronx, but he went out while the Yankees were still on top of the universe as defending champions. I’m sure he wouldn’t have it any other way. And hopefully he’ll get to meet up with some other Yankees legends up there in the sky somewhere.

Hey Freddy, say hello to George, Bob, and the rest of the fellas for us.
