Frank Malzone, the legendary Boston Red Sox third baseman from the 1950s and 1960s, has passed away at the age of 85.
Malzone was a six-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner during his 11-year career with the Red Sox from 1955-1965. He finished his last season in the majors with the California Angels in 1966. He finished his career with a .274 batting average, hitting 133 home runs and driving in 728 runs. Upon the completion of his playing career, he spent over 35 years as a scout for the Red Sox.
My sincere condolences to the Malzone family. Frank was a staple in the RedSox family and great guy. Jerry— Jerry Remy (RemDawg) (@Jerry_Remy) December 29, 2015
