Baseball losses Charlie Fox

Postby WebHamster » Wed Feb 18, 2004 3:00 am

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Charlie Fox, a former major league player, coach, manager, scout and front office executive, passed away at the age of 82 due to complications from pneumonia.

"I've known him ever since I came into baseball in 1955," said Jim Davenport, the former star third baseman who played a partial season under Fox with San Francisco in 1971. "I liked Charlie -- he always said what he felt like saying, and I never heard anyone say a bad word about him."

The New York native was first signed by the New York Giants in 1941. After serving three years with the United States Navy during World War II, Fox returned to the organization to coach, including a stint as the San Francisco manager from 1970-1973.

"I just talked to Willie McCovey today and he was saddened as well," said Davenport. "He was a good manager and loved to talk baseball and be involved in the game."

Fox had a stint as general manager for the Montreal Expos from 1976-78. His final big league position was as a special assignment scout in the Houston Astros organization from 1990-93.
