Longtime baseball fixture Don Zimmer dies at 83 Rest in peace Popeye! Don Zimmer embodied the romance of major league baseball. Personally, I'll always associate him with the Chicago Cubs, first as a third base coach for the '84 Cubs and later as a manager of the '89 Cubs, both teams that should have been in the World Series.
