Two notable figures passed away yesterday. Brooklyn Dodgers great Duke Snider died at the age of 84. Center fielder Snider helped to lead the 1950s-era Dodgers to six World Series, and was an eight-time All Star. Also, the last surviving American soldier from World War I, Frank Buckles, died at the age of 110. Even at his advanced age, he participated in Congressional hearings on veterans issues.
Rest in peace.
