"Jim Fregosi was one of my favorite players of all times. He was very personable with fans and just a very lovable looking man. Eventhough I live in TEXAS, I was originally a Califonian and he will always be an Angel to me. I can just imagine the Dream Team he is joining upstairs. God bless him. My heart goes out to his family. He was definitely one of the best."

"I just learned of Mr. Fregosi's passing. I and my colleagues became acquainted with him when he periodically came to our walk in clinic. His personality was infectious and always brightened up our day with jokes and smile. He often talked about how he didn't understand how his wife put up with him and would often tell us about the nice cruises he and his wife enjoyed! He loved his children and bragged on them often. He never bragged about himself and was very humble. We are very saddened that he's passed on to his new life, but know he made a lasting mark in everyone's heart! Our prayers are with his wife and children. May God comfort you in your time of grief. Heaven gained another Angel!"

"It was during pre-game batting practice at Old Comiskey Park in Chicago, sometime during the mid-1960s. I was a young stumpy peach-faced kid, wearing a White Sox hat, and hanging on the fence near the visitor's on-deck circle. A player wearing an enemy uniform, the Angels, was practicing his swing not far from where I stood. Suddenly, he turned to me and said, "I guess a good White Sox fan like you wouldn't take a baseball from an Angels player, would you?". I straightened up immediately, and replied, "Yes, I would! Yes, I would!". The enemy player grinned, leaned over and tossed me a baseball. I still have it to this day. That "enemy" ballplayer was Jim Fregosi. I am still a White Sox fan, but on that day, at Old Comiskey Park in the 1960s, I instantly became his greatest life-long fan. God Bless You, James Louis Fregosi."
