What a sad year this has been for the Tigers.

Ernie Harwell died. Sparky Anderson died. Bill Lajoie died.

And last night, Steve Boros.

Maybe he wasn't as well known as the other three, but I'd challenge you to find anyone who knew him and didn't like him. And just about anyone who spent time in baseball over the last 50 years ran into Boros at one time or another.

He was a $25,000 Tigers bonus baby in 1957, a local kid signed out of Flint and the University of Michigan. He was never a big-league star, but he spent parts of seven seasons with the Tigers, Reds and Cubs. He later managed in the big leagues, with the 1983-84 A's and the 1986 Padres. He was one of the first managers to make use of a computer.

Boros came back to the Tigers in 1996, working first as minor-league field coordinator and then in other jobs through 2004.

Boros was 74.
