We all know Billy Connors, a true Yankee and has been around for ever.  He died at 76 years old.  Pretty sad if you ask me.

ESPN has this:

"Billy Connors, a longtime Yankees executive and pitching coach, died Monday. He was 76.

'The Yankees organization mourns the passing of Billy Connors, who was a close and trusted friend of my family for many years,' Yankees general managing partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. 'Since joining the Yankees at the conclusion of the 1988 season, Billy contributed to the organization in countless ways over his long career as a pitching coach, executive and advisor. On behalf of the Steinbrenner family, I extend our deepest condolences to Billy's family, friends and loved ones.'"

Prayers to his family.  Rest in Peace, Billy.
