We discovered a couple of days ago that our Baseball hero from the ranks of the Silver People of Panama, Jonathan “Clyde” Parris,  just passed away at age 93 on July 9, 2016 in Valley Stream, New York.  We wrote about him previously here.

Thanks to his young friend, fan and interviewer, Nick Diunte who posted articles about him on his blog here, we were updated on his passing.  Thank you Nick Diunte for your loving attention to this great man and athlete.  You can also view his entire professional career here

For us, in Panama, Clyde will always be a star and a Big Leaguer. Rest in the arms of Jesus dear friend!
