Baseball remembers Duke Snider

59sniderHere are more reactions to the death of Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodger great Duke Snider:

Commissioner Bud Selig:"Duke Snider was a great human being, an extraordinary Hall of Fame player and an integral part of Dodger history, winning the World Series in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles. … I have many fond memories of watching Duke play, and I will be forever grateful for getting to know him well in the ensuing years."

Mike Scioscia, Angels manager and former Dodgers catcher: "What a nice man. This guy was so nice to all of us that went through the Dodger organization. … He was very humble and for being one of the all-time greats, he had perspective."

Billy DeLury, longtime Dodger front-office employee: "He always had time to spend with you and sit down to talk to you. To me, that made him a class guy. He's going to be missed. He's going to be missed by our organization."

Snider's news obituary can be found here.
