ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Rochester Red Wings announced on Wednesday that Joe Altobelli has died at 88 years old.
Known as Rochester’s “Mr. Baseball,” Red Wings officials said that Altobelli filled more roles for the organization than anyone else. Throughout his time with the team he was a player, coach, manager, GM, assistant to the President and radio analyst with the Wings.
A celebration of Joe Altobelli’s life will be held at Frontier Field on a date to be determined later this year.
