RIP Monte Irvin, Baseball Hall of Famer

Although not strictly probate or elder law, I was sad to see that Monte Irvin passed away. The New York Times has a  good story here. I wish I could have seen guys like Monte Irvin, Satchel Paige, Cool Papa Bell, Martin Dihigo, and the rest play in their primes. It is amazing to think what they went through in their time. He was among the choices to break the color barrier, and he was one of the pioneers after it was broken. Here is a picture of his plaque from the Baseball Hall of Fame, and a link to his page there.
