    Re: Recent Deaths in the Sports World

    I always appreciate the updates listed here.

    On January 30, 2013, former Angels, Colt .45's, and Pirates pitcher George "Red" Witt passed away. He played MLB from 1957 to 1962. His passing was listed in the Orange County Register newspaper obituaries this past week.

    Re: Recent Deaths in the Sports World

    Los Angeles Lakers Owner since 1979 Dr. Jerry Buss passed away this morning from a battle with cancer it is being reported.

    This is a very sad day for those of us who are Lakers fans. The man was a winner through and through and his son Jim has already proven that the apple has fallen very far from the tree.

    It could certainly be argued that Dr. Buss was the greater owner in professional sports 10 titles in 34 years and only missing the playoffs I believe 3 times in 34 years makes that statement very much true.

    May God bless the Buss family during this difficult time.
