Rusty Staub Has Died

March 29, 2018

This painful note from our SABR brother, Paul Rogers, and the link to the story of his demise say as well as possible:

“Rusty Staub – “Le Grand Orange” – passed away late last night at 73 after a long hospital stay. Oldsters will remember him as an 18 year-old phenom with the then brand new Houston Colt .45s. Here is the New York Times obituary which aptly describes his career and considerable charitable activities:”
