Reno Bertoia

On this date in 2011, Reno Bertoia passed away at age 76.

"When sportswriters want to make fun of a player, they sometimes call him 'immortal' as in the 'immortal Reno Bertoia'. I don't like that, it seems like a cheap crack. Because to me, Reno Bertoia is immortal. He made it to the big leagues, and he's in the record book, and he'll still be there as long as anybody plays baseball. He's in the Baseball Encyclopedia, and that's a lot harder than getting into the phone book."
