80322904MH042_Baltimore_OriFreddy Schuman, known forever to Yankees fans as “Freddy Sez,” has died, according to the Daily News. He was 85.

I know there are people out there who have been going to Yankee games for a lot longer than I (or Chad) have, but all it took was one visit – one time hearing that plink-plink-plink – to know about Freddy. There are a lot of special things and people that have become pieces of the Yankee fabric over the years, and Freddy was most assuredly one of them.

He’ll be missed.
