Oakland Athletics icon Ray Fosse dies at 74

The Oakland Athletics have lost a longtime family member like “franchise icon” Ray Fosse. passed away on Wednesday at the age of 74. Former Major League catcher Carol Fosse’s wife of more than 50 years said in a statement that Ray had been battling cancer for 16 years.

Fosse was chosen as the seventh overall pick by the Cleveland Indians in the June 1965 MLB amateur draft and spent the first six seasons of his career with the franchise, making a couple of All-Star teams and winning two Gold Gloves awards as well. During his first All-Star appearance in 1970, Fosse was involved in a famous home plate collision with Pete Rose, when “Charlie Hustle” rushed over the backrest to score the winning run in the 12th inning.

The nasty blow resulted in the fracture and separation of Fosse’s left shoulder, and he told the Associated Press 45 years later that his body still ached from the collision.

Fosse was traded to the Athletics in 1973 and helped the club win the World Series consecutively that season and in 1974. Fosse returned to Cleveland for the 1976 season and part of the 1977 campaign, before concluding his career with 11 games with the Seattle Mariners later that year and 19 games with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1979.

After game days, Fosse was a beloved broadcaster for the Athletics from 1986 through part of the 2021 season.
