    As classy a gentleman as you could ever meet, he was a ML pitcher, pitching coach and manager (Giants and Yankees):

    Later he was one of the advisors who had Steinbrenner's constant trust.

    Clyde, no matter how much he did for George Steinbrenner and the Yankees, never forgot his hometown, which is also mine. Well-regarded throughout Goldsboro and Wayne County along with Jerry Narron and Clarence Rose (among others) and for good, good reason.

    RIP Clyde and thanks.

    Sparky didn't have to look far for a pitching coach of the Hereafter All-Stars.
