Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson has died at age 76. Family spokesman Dan Ewald says Sparky died from complications of dementia.
Anderson led the Cincinnati Reds to a World Series championship in 1975 and 1976 and the Detroit Tigers to the title in 1984. He was the first manager to win a World Series for both a National League and an American League team.
He died one day after being placed in hospice care on Nov. 3.
