Former Toronto Blue Jays manager Jim Fregosi has died at the age of 71.
Fregosi died Friday morning after suffering strokes last weekend while on a cruise for baseball fans. He was taken off life support on Thursday.
Jim Fregosi spent 18 years in the major leagues and was named an all-star six times, managing the Blue Jays from 1999-2000 and compiling a record of 167-157. Toronto was over .500 both years, but finished third in the American League East division.
He also led several other clubs, including Philadelphia in the 1993 World Series which was won by Toronto.
His last managing gig came with the Blue Jays.
Fregosi worked as an executive for the Atlanta Braves.
