Chuck Tanner was a very gracious and humble man. A year after he won the World Serices, he was at my home in Erie, Pa. with his son Mark, and had dinner with our three kids and my wife and I. I became friends with his son Mark, who at the time, was a Josten's sales representative. Chuck had agreed to come to Seneca High School, here in Erie, and talk to the baseball team and at no cost to anyone; he just truly liked everyone. While at the dinner table, Chuck took off his World Serise ring to show all of us and my one son, who was a great Pirate fan, got so nervous he tipped over his glass of milk and spilled it, particlaly, on Chuck...not a oproblem.
To this day we kid my son about the incident. May God bless Chuck in Heaven,his immediate family, and all his great friends.
