Baseball lifer and 1983 World Series champion Joe Altobelli died Wednesday of natural causes, his adopted hometown team the Rochester Red Wings announced. He was 88 years old.

Altobelli’s crowning achievement came as Orioles manager. After replacing Hall of Fame skipper Earl Weaver in 1983, Altobelli led Baltimore to a 98-win season before beating the Chicago White Sox in the American League Championship Series and taking down the Philadelphia Phillies in the Fall Classic.
