RIP Col. Jerry Coleman "The Colonel" 1924-2014
We are saddened to inform you that on January 5th, 2014, Colonel Jerry Coleman departed this life. A baseball player, manager, broadcaster, and decorated war hero (though he'd never let you call him that), Jerry Coleman leaves this world better than he found it. We are honored to have worked with you! Rest in Peace Colonel! May your memory be eternal!
