A message from the family of Sparky AndersonI have said a prayer for Sparky.
Hall of Fame Manager Sparky Anderson has been placed in the care of hospice for complications resulting from dementia at his home in Thousands Oaks, California.
The Anderson family -- wife, Carol; sons Lee and Albert; and daughter Shirley Englebrecht -- wishes to express appreciation to all friends and fans for the support and kindness they have shown throughout Sparky's career and retirement.
The family is particularly grateful for the respect for privacy the national and local media has demonstrated during this trying period.
