For the third time in less than two weeks, the Yankees have lost a noteworthy member of their family. Ralph Houk, their manager from 1961-63, and again from 1966-73, has passed away at the age of 90.
Houk piloted the Yanks to two World Series titles and another AL pennant in his first three seasons at the helm.
Houk also skippered the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox after he left the Yankees. At the time of his death, he was the oldest surviving manager of a World Series champion.
Our condolences go out to Houk’s family.
