    Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson dies - ESPN Los Angeles

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson has died, his family announced Wednesday. He was 76.

    Anderson, who managed the Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers to World Series titles, died as a result of complications from dementia, family spokesman Dan Ewald said in a statement.

    His death came a day after the family announced he had been placed in hospice care at his home.

    Anderson won 2,194 games as a manager, which was the third-highest total in major league history when he retired, trailing Connie Mack and John McGraw. He now stands sixth, also trailing Tony La Russa, Bobby Cox and Joe Torre.

    Anderson was the first manager to win World Series titles in both leagues and the only manager to lead two franchises in career wins.

    He was great for baseball. When I read that he was 76 I was surprised because with his white hair I thought he was 76 years old when I remember (barely) watching the Big Red Machine! Very good manager.

    Also...he was the central character in one of the best WKRP in Cincinatti episodes!!
