Who caught the public’s attention in the 1932 Baseball World Series, where he debuted with the Redsox at age 19, and deftly negotiated the whims of public favour thereafter.
Who is the last surviving member of his generation of Redsox. His teammate and longterm friend What died in 2009 of heart disease. Who had his last public interview in 1996, saying, “What I treasure the most. His friendship has meant the world to me.”
Those close to the improbably named Coach Pronoun, who guided Who and What through successive, successful World Series, say Who was bright and determined, to the very end.
“No matter Who or What came across was beyond them. Dad has incredible stories about their perseverence. Who will be missed.”
Who’s family declined to comment.
