Ben Mondor, owner of Pawtucket Red Sox, RIP

Ben Mondor passed away peacefully last night at his home at 85 years old. He purchased the PawSox in 1977. I knew the area well. McCoy Stadium used to be a dump, but he turned into a world class minor league stadium. I've had the pleasure of covering 2 games from the press box there. I was treated with respect by all the employees who were very polite and courteous, a sign of a well run organization. I'm sure Ben willed be missed by the baseball community in addition to his family and all those who knew him
