Tributes: Don Zimmer

Thursday, June 05, 2014

Don Zimmer was a big man, physically, but he had a huge presence in the world of baseball for over 60 years, as a player, manager, coach, and adviser.  He was married on a baseball diamond in 1951, and, some would say, he never left the field – between playing infield with the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the Mets (where he was an original member), and then as Yankee manager Joe Torre’s right-hand man and bench coach on four World Series championship teams.  He died recently at the age of 83.  And you can hear his conversation with Leonard Lopate from April 2001.
