Farewell, George Kell

Yesterday, a baseball legend passed away at the age of 86. George Kell, a lifelong resident of Swifton, Arkansas, passed from this life yesterday, March 24, 2009.

Mr. Kell played 3B for the Detroit Tigers among other teams and was part of the Tigers’ broadcast team for 40 years.

Regretfully, I don’t have a personal story of Mr. Kell, but I have heard him multiple times as a guest on Arkansas sports radio broadcasts in recent years and thoroughly enjoyed hearing his stories of his life in baseball. The baseball world as well as those of us left behind in Arkansas will miss the history and stories that have passed along with this man. My condolences to his family in their loss.
