R.I.P. Freddy “Sez” Schuman

The longtime Yankees fan known as Freddy “Sez”, has passed away at age 85.

Commonly known for his inspirational signs at games, along with his frying pan and spoon, Freddy was as much apart of Yankee Stadium as the Bleacher Creatures and will most certainly be missed by everyone.

He passed away Sunday afternoon after suffering a heart attack on Friday evening, according to ESPN.

A close friend, Chuck Frantz, said that Freddy had been attending Yankees games for the past 22 seasons and his last game was the clinching game 3 of the ALDS against the Twins a week ago.

Yankee Stadium has lost yet another great member of its community.

    I attended Game 3 of the ALDS and I remember seeing him and he looked as if he was in good health. He was taking pics with fans and it was a calm experience. I'm saddened and my heart aches. My heart has been aching this past summer and now the fall over these Yankee deaths…

      It truly has been a sad year for every Yankees fan out there, far too many great people that were apart of this organization are now gone.

    I am a member of the Lehigh Valley Yankee Fan Club and Chuck Frantz is our President. Chuck would bring Freddy into the Lehigh Valley many times for our various charity events. Freddy would never turn it down, especially if it was for charity and if it was for a sick child. I knew Freddy personally, as did many members of our club. We will miss Freddy terribly.

    This summer I attended my first Yankees home game in 10 years (I went to school out west and stayed for too long). It was warming to come back and see Freddy trotting up and down the aisles. Freddy was there when my Dad took me to see the likes of Melido Perez or Tim Leary on the mound and Matt Nokes behind the plate, and then the great teams that followed. Freddy did all he could, successfully getting us excited. I'm glad I got to see him one last time.
