Former Phillies manager Jim Fregosi passed away early this morning at the age of 71. He suffered a stroke on a Major League Baseball alumni cruise on Tuesday and was taken to a Miami hospital. Fregosi was working as a special assistant to Braves general manager Frank Wren.
The former MLB All Star shortstop will always be remembered in Philadelphia as manager of the 1993 National League Champion Phillies. He was the manager of the Phillies for six seasons from 1991-1996 compiling a 431-463 (.482) record with the highlight being the trip to the World Series in 1993.
