Reds owner Marge Schott passes away

Postby WebHamster » Wed Mar 03, 2004 3:00 am

Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Cincinnati Reds minority owner Marge Schott died Tuesday at the age of 75.

Schott had been in Christ Hospital in Cincinnati for several weeks due to breathing difficulties. She was a longtime smoker who was hospitalized twice in 2001 after suffering similar problems.

Still a limited share owner of the Reds, Schott sold a majority of her controlling shares in 1999. She was the team's owner when Cincinnati won the World Series in 1990.

The enigmatic owner was known as a frugal boss who was quite demanding of her players. Schott frequently paraded around the field and the locker room with her dogs, an act that irked many of the players.

Sad to see her go. She may have been frugal w/ some things,but she would spend money and sign players when needed.
