I just received a call that YES board member EnterSandman passed away Easter Sunday.  His wife Roberta called me to tell me the sad news. For longtime members he'll be remembered for his great spring training reports.  He was a diehard Yankee fan.  I became good friend with him on this board and we used to email each other regularly.  A couple years ago when I went down to ST Pete for a vacation we got together, and he took me to the Yankees complex and caught a minor league game together.  It was the highlight of my trip.  I was looking forward to seeing him again this summer if his he was up to it.  I will miss him.

Rest in Peace buddy.

For us, his body is resting in peace. 


In actuality, he's probably catching a game up in heaven with Babe, Lou, & Joe D. 


I didn't know EnterSandman, personally, but I did read his reports often. I will miss doing so.

So sorry to hear this Big Guy.


We used to write all the time and had become friendly, spoke to Roberta also ... but we lost touch about a year ago.


Rest in peace Robert a/k/a EnterSandman.
