I've read on a couple other message boards that Bruce Dal Canton (Royals 1971-75) passed away on October 7. This has been a terrible year for Royals alumni. We've never lost more than 2 ex-Royals in a single year. This marks the 5th death of 2008 (Lance Clemons, Steve Mingori, Bill Sorrell, Todd Cruz are the others).
Hopefully this will be the last one of 2008. RIP Mr. Dal Canton.
