Jim Frey passed away Sunday at the age of 88.  He led the Cubs to a division title in 1984 as they got to one win away from a World Series appearance.  Frey managed the Cubs from 1984 through the beginning of the 1986 season.  He was later hired by the Cubs to be their general manager.

Frey also managed the Kansas City Royals before coming to Chicago.
