Speedy outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds (1980-1986, 1988) and San Francisco Giants (1987), Eddie Milner passed away yesterday. He collected 145 stolen bases in his career, including 41 in 1983 and 35 in 1985.

(Editor’s note: This news comes from Milner’s Reds teammate Tom Hume‘s Twitter page. I have not yet corroborated it with any other news sources, and neither the Reds nor Giants have not issued any statements as of this posting.)
