Former Red Sox manager Ralph Houk dies

As posted in the game blog entry, I spoke to the grandson of former Red Sox manager Ralph Houk. Scott Sloboden said his granddad passed away this afternoon at 1:15 p.m. at his home in Winter Haven, Fla. Mr. Houk was 90 years old.

Houk managed the Red Sox from 1981 through 1984, guiding the Sox to a 312-282 record over that span.
