The High Hopes DVD commemorating the 1993 pennant-winning Phillies is the dominant image / visual that comes flooding to mind. I may¬† be a lifelong Twins fan, but that Gashouse Gang of the ’90s squad was my favorite team of all-time, full stop.
On a team filled with strong personalities and tough hombres, Fregosi was the undisputed leader of a clubhouse and¬†team well worth remembering, and Fregosi’s final comment on that DVD (which comes at the 2:11 mark of the clip below) perfectly encapsulates my sentiments, as well as those of numerous others, I’m sure…
From everyone at Bugs & Cranks: Our condolences to Mr. Fregosi’s friends and family.
And thanks for ’93
