Good-Bye, Bingo

Sad news - former Milwaukee Brewer George "Bingo" Binks passed away yesterday.

Bingo was a scrappy player with a deep love of the game, qualities which made him a fan favorite on the 1944 pennant-winning Brewer club before he moved up to the majors, as Paul Tenpenny wrote in his excellent profile of Bingo earlier this year.

Bingo's daughter-in-law and grandson-in-law were gracious enough to leave comments on the post after his passing; we thank them for their kind words and wish to express our condolences for their family's loss.
