Baseballer Eddie Yost Dies

By  | 

Eddie Yost, nicknamed "The Walking Man" because of his penchant for drawing bases on balls during an 18-year major league career, has died. He was 86. The Boston Red Sox say Yost died Tuesday in Weston, Mass., but did not announce a cause. After his playing days, Yost was a third base coach for three different teams. Primarily a third baseman from 1944-62, Yost drew 1,614 walks-- a total that still ranks 11th all time. Yost at one time played for the Detroit Tigers.
