Not sure what to say?

I was saddened to see the umps wearing a``RG``
on their left shoulder.I knew my longtime good
friend had passed.We shared many great time over the years,in the Umpire`s Memorial Stadium
locker room.He was a very good man and it was an honor to have known him.He was wrong once,as
he said``we won`t be back``.Of course the `79
World Series did come back to Baltimore.Thank
you for all the good times and memories.R.I.P.

RIP ump! I saw you at the 1979 World Series in Baltimore, MD as a young boy looking to eventually umpire baseball!

Russ was a great umpire. Condolences to family and friends
