LaRussa/Francona And Remembering Sherman Drusin

September 17, 2021

Day after day goes and within them loss, such as the terrible news that Sherman Drusin, a truly good man wed to my glorious teacher and friend June for nearly 60 years had died unexpectedly.

I am so glad that I met him, each of us going on and on about and showing collectibles while June looked on in their beautiful Florida home just before the “still here” pandemic moved in full force in late February, 2020.

Sherman was also my friend, a truly good classy man, always willing to listen, advise and help. What a loss, however the still young and beautiful inside and out, June will go on just as Sherman would have wanted.

As a slight tribute, I reveal that in a game at Oakland Coliseum on Bat Day before 45,000 plus fans on June’s birthday in 1970, the father of a future multi time title winning manager pinch hit for the fine player, Dick Green.

The replacement at second base for the “lifted” Mr. Green was a 3 time title winning manager, who incredibly at age 78 has essentially already guided the Chicago White Sox to a one eighth/ A.L. Central crown currently leading the aforementioned son of the pinch hitter’s team by a wide margin.

Can you name the father and son while I have all but named the 3 time title winning manager.
