One of the great pitchers of all time passed away at age 82. We'll know he's made it to heaven if after tomorrow we get two days of rain.

Spahn was one of the greatest Wisconsin sports figures of all time. He will be missed.

Glad to see people still remember him and the 1957 world champion Milwaukee Braves.

RIP, Warren. Say hi to Harvey Kuehn when you get there.

"Spahn and Sain and a day of rain, then Spahn and Sain again."

He was also the main cog in the great threesome of himself, Burdette and Buhl that led the tremendous Milwaukee teams of the late 50's.

What a team that was! Adcock, Shoendienst, Logan and Mathews first to third, Aaron, Covington and Bruton in the outfield (with help from Pafko) and Del Crandall at catcher.

Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post has a nice column up about Spahn in which he refers to him as the unknown immortal. The link follows.
