I received notification on June 12, 2013, that Honus passed away as a result of heart issues. I know he was a great baseball fan and an admirer of Honus Wagner. He will be missed.

RIP Honus!

Honus only had 32 Buddies and I was one of them.

I agree that he honored Honus Wagner with his avatar.

Honus often posted congrats on my GB milestones on my whiteboard. I often wondered who his avatar was a picture of when loranda pointed out that it was Honus Wagner who is written up in Wikipedia:

"Johannes Peter "Honus" Wagner (/'h?n?s 'wægn?r/; February 24, 1874 – December 6, 1955[1] ), nicknamed "The Flying Dutchman" due to his superb speed and German heritage ("Dutch" in this instance being an alteration of "Deutsch"), was an American Major League Baseball shortstop. He played in the National League from 1897 to 1917, almost entirely for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wagner won eight batting titles, tied for the most in NL history with Tony Gwynn. He also led the league in slugging six times, and in stolen bases five times.
In 1936, the Baseball Hall of Fame inducted Wagner as one of the first five members. He received the second-highest vote total, behind Ty Cobb and tied with Babe Ruth."
