Lenny Yochim, Former New Orleans Pelican, Passes Away

The Friends of Rickwood are saddened deeply to have learned of the May 11th death of Lenny Yochim, former New Orleans Pelican and Pittsburgh Pirate.  Mr. Yochim was 84.

Mr. Yochim, and former Pelican teammate, Mel Brookey, participated in the first annual Southern Association Conference, in 2006, and stole-the-show.  It was both a pleasure and an honor to have met these gentlemen.

Please see link below to the New Orleans Times-Picayune article concerning Mr. Yochim’s passing, as well as the obituary below:
