Casey Stengel. Where do I begin?
A player. A manager. A Hall of Famer. He did it all.
“The Old Perfessor” won 10 pennants as manager for the Yankees. He won it all seven times, and became the only manager to win five in a row (1949-53).
Stengel passed away on Sept. 29, 1975 at Glendale Memorial Hospital in Glendale, Calif. He was 85.
