Jerry Coleman, Yankees legend, war hero and Hall of Fame broadcaster, dies at 89

Quote:
Jerry Coleman, truly a man for all seasons - a decorated war hero, Yankee World Series MVP and iconic, Hall-of-Fame San Diego Padres broadcaster - died Sunday at age 89, after a career of more than 70 years in baseball, the Padres announced.

Coleman, a baseball treasure, signed originally with the Yankees out of the San Francisco sandlots in 1942, only to spend the next three years as a marine bomber pilot in the Pacific theatre of World War II, flying 57 combat missions over the Solomon Islands. Upon returning from the service in 1946, Coleman worked his way back up through the Yankees' minor league system, joining them in 1949 when he hit .275 and led all American League second basemen in fielding (.980).
