Truly sad to hear of the passing of Ed Charles.

Ed came to the Queens Baseball Convention a few years back to pick up his Gil Hodges Award.   I didn’t know too much about Ed as he played before my time, but listening to him speak about his time as a player and how much he loved Gil – several us got actually choked up.

Here’s the audio if you’d like to remember Ed, and maybe get to know him a little better.
