Photos: Remembering the late Oakland A’s legend Ray Fosse through the years

It has been a sad day for Oakland Athletics and baseball fans as longtime TV host and team catcher Ray Foss passed away on Wednesday. He was 74 years old.

Tough fighter A has battled cancer for 16 years, but his baseball legacy, when he spent three of his 12 seasons in the Major Leagues in Oakland and won two World Series titles, will continue. Although his tenure as a player was short-lived, his mark on the team lasted for decades. He has worked with announcer Ken Korach in the booth for 26 years.
