RIP - Joe Cunningham

Joe Cunningham, an OF/1B for several teams in the 1950s and 1960s, passed away on March 25, 2021 at age 89. 
He was a Cardinals' outfielder from 1954-61, making the All-Star team in 1959 while also finishing 2nd to Hank Aaron for the batting title. 
He manned 1st base for the White Sox in 1962, but an injury in 1963 limited his playing time in '63 and '64. He also played for the Senators from 1964-66. 
After playing, he worked for the Cardinals as a minor-league manager and later in sales.
