Granddaughter of former Phillies manager Dallas Green shot and killed in Arizona

By Dan Parzych

Sad news for the Philadelphia Phillies this week as former manager Dallas Green after his nine-year old granddaughter passed away over the weekend. On Saturday, Christina-Taylor Green was one of six people that were shot and killed by a gunman outside of a grocery store in Tucson, Arizona.

Green played for the Phillies in the 1960’s and was managed the team from 1979-81. He even led the Phillies to a World Series title in 1980–their first in franchise history. Thoughts and prayers go out to Green and his family during this tragic time.
