I recently read an article about one of baseball’s all-time greats, Sparky Anderson, who passed away due to complications from dementia earlier today at his home in California.
What impressed me about the article was how it talked about his genuine kindness for everyone he met, always treating people with equal respect.
I can’t help but think about the legacy he left behind and the lives that he touched during his twenty-six years of managing in the major leagues.
I would like to be remembered as someone who treated people with the utmost respect, who loved fully, and as someone who was the same person in public settings as he was in those moments in private, that only few had seen.
How do you want to be remembered?
