Not only have there been many recording stars who have passed away recently, but the same can be said of athletes. The latest was Frank Sullivan. Younger fans don’t remember him, but I do. He pitched for a few teams including the Red Sox back in the 50’s. He wasn’t very good, he was 97-100 lifetime and had an ERA well over 4.00. He did make an All Star game or two and gave up a walk-off home-run to Stan Musial in the last of the 12th in the 1955 All-Star game.
Yes Frank Sullivan wasn’t very good, but he will always be special to me. He was the starting pitcher for the Red Sox in the first game I ever saw with my dad when I was 8 years old.
Yes I remember Frank Sullivan. He passed away earlier this week at the age of 85.
