Baseball lost two of its all-time greats over the winter. Hall of Fame slugger Ralph Kiner and National Radio Hall of Fame broadcaster Jerry Coleman both passed away following long and amazing lives. Kiner was 91, Coleman was 89.

Prior to their season-opener on Monday, the Mets paid tribute to Kiner, who started broadcasting their games way back in 1962. Here's the tribute:

Coleman, who liked to talk about his military service first and his baseball career second, broadcast the Padres from 1972-2013. They paid tribute to him prior to their season-opener on Sunday. Here's the video:

Excellent job by both teams.
