I just found out that Greg Goossen has passed away.

Anyone who has seen the documentary knows that it would not have been the same without him. His sense of humor really livened up the film. I’m so glad I got to meet him.

When we had the Pilots 40th Anniversary event at SafeCo in August of ’09, I picked him up at the a…irport. He was due to have knee surgery in a couple of weeks and was hobbling around in obvious pain. Unfortunately, I got turned around in the parking garage and we ended up doing a huge amount of walking. But Greg never complained and laughed off my constant apologies. At the Baseball Reliquary event last Fall he gave me a big hug and talked about what a great time he had at the reunion.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family. He was a great one and he’ll be missed.
