    Joe Altobelli, best remembered as the manager of the 1983 World Series winning Baltimore Orioles, died on 3/3 at age 88.

    Altobelli's best season was also his first go-round managing the O's through mid-1985. Before that, he was the field boss for the Giants (1977-79) and afterwards served as an interim manager for the Cubs for 1 game in 1991.

    Joe's MLB playing career as a LF-PH-1B was sporadic, with stints with Cleveland in both 1955 and 1957 and his last hurrah as a player with the Twins in 1961.

    Jeff Goldbach, whose career in pro ball began as a promising prospect in the Cubs minor league system, died on 3/7 at age 41.

    A catcher who also played at 1B and in LF, Goldbach was in the Cubs organization from 1998-2002. He began the 2003 season at AA Frisco (Rangers) but never got past Double-A ball, so he turned to the independent minor leagues in mid-2003, playing there until his retirement after the 2006 season performing his trade in both the Northern League and the Frontier League.
