Chuck Tanner, manager of Pittsburgh's last World Series championship team, passed away today at age 81.  Tanner played eight seasons in the majors but gained more fame as a manager, compiling a 401-414 record manning the benches of the White Sox, Athletics, Pirates and Braves from 1970 to 1988.  Tanner's lone postseason appearance came in 1979 when he led the "We Are Family" Bucs to victory over the Orioles in a tight, seven-game World Series.  The MLBTR team sends its condolences to Tanner's friends and family.
