    Who died in 2020

    Noting the death not celebrating it. Celebrating the life with some exceptions (eg Yorkshire Ripper might die this year).

    Who died in 2020

    Quoting mlcor
    ďAn interesting situation--he did something no other pitcher has ever done, and probably will never duplicate--pitching a perfect game (no hits, no walks, no errors, no base runners at all allowed) in a World Series game for the NY Yankees in 1956. There have only been 23 perfect games in baseball history (out of over 218,000 games played).

    What's interesting is that this was really his only star accomplishment (although he did win a couple more World Series games)--he only won 11 games that year for the Yankees, which was the most he would ever win in one season, and finished his career with a mediocre lifetime record of 81 wins and 91 losses. But for that one game, he was (and may always be) unique.Ē

    Georges Duboeuf, 86 the man who made an ordinary local wine an international sensation.
    A negociant extrodinare, M Duboeuf was probably the most recognized, if not the biggest name in French export wines of the late 20th century.
    If you drink wine, you've most likely drunk something that he had a hand in producing, bottling, or selling.

    He looks more like a large to me.

    Why do they never see it coming?
