RIP: N.Y. Yankees Ultimate Fan – Freddy “Sez” Schuman (10/17/2010)

It’s with great sadness that I report to the readers of this blog about the passing of the biggest fan of the New York Yankees baseball franchise – Mr. Freddy “Sez” Schuman who passed away on 10/17/10 after suffering a heart attack a few days ago.  He was 85 years old. You might be wondering why I’ve chosen to add such an individual and give them props in a primarily music related blog’s memorial category, but my reasoning for this is simple.  As a music journalist I know full well about how important the fans of the bands I write about are. I meet so many of them in my adventures and often applaud their interest and zeal in the music scene along with the various groups.  That being said, the New York Yankees were blessed to have a fan like Mr. Schuman who rallied the fans to the charge by banging on a heavy steel pan with a thick spoon.  Had you watched any of the teams games over the years you would have likely heard this clanging going off during a lot of their home ones.
