R.I.P. Red Foley: 1929 – 2008

Legendary New York sports writer Red Foley has passed away. He wrote for the NY Daily News for 34 years, including his sports question and answer column, “Ask Red”. He was also an official scorer for Major League Baseball from 1966 – 2002, covering over 3,000 games and a most-ever 10 World Series.

Even though he didn’t drink, his legacy lives on in a New York sports bar named in his honor.
Looking for an Irish-baseball connection, baseball enthusiast and bar owner Shaun Clancey named his bar on W. 33rd St. after the iconic baseball scribe.

So have a drink and talk baseball in honor of Red Foley at his namesake pub:
