Oakland A’s statement on Ray Fosse:
My thoughts and prayers are with the Fosse family and A’s tonight… his love and passion for the game will be missed across baseball.
Rest In Peace, Ray Fosse 🙏🏼
I’m so sorry to learn that Ray Fosse has died. I learned as much or more baseball from him over 25 years than maybe anyone else in the game. His tremendous insights and his passion for the A’s will be so missed. A very sad day for the organization and for Major League Baseball.
It's with immense sadness to announce the passing of Ray Fosse. Our thoughts are with the entire Fosse family, A's organization and the fans. https://t.co/hEOl9HxIZm
Super Sky Point to 2-time All-Star and 2-time World Series champ Ray Fosse. The man silently battled cancer for 16 years, that’s the strength and dignity he possessed. #RIP
There are so many great Ray Fosse moments, but my favorite has to be the time he and Glen Kuiper met the Phillie Phanatic
We are saddened to learn of the passing of Ray Fosse.
In 8 seasons with Cleveland, Ray became a fan favorite. The two-time All-Star and Gold Glover was selected as a member of the Indians Top 100 players in 2001.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends during this time.
I am so heartbroken. Ray Fosse was such a special person for not only myself but for the @Athletics
organization. Rest In Peace my friend. We love you!
Tonight we remember Ray Fosse, who has passed away at 74. The two-time @Indians
All-Star catcher was a key part of two @Athletics
World Championship teams before becoming a beloved broadcaster in Oakland. We send our condolences to the loved ones of this class act.
I will miss the trademark “wow”s, the over-glorification of every single catcher to put on the gear, and the fixation during ballpark food cutaway shots. But selfishly I will miss the regular ribbings that came from Ray Fosse.
Oakland A’s broadcaster, two-time World Series Champion, two time All Star and two-time Gold Glover Ray Fosse has passed away.
Fosse, the first ever draft pick by the Cleveland Indians in 1965, was 73. https://t.co/MTDKQzXk6D

Such terrible news. Ray Fosse, synonymous with A's baseball since the '70s, has died. Well respected and liked around the game, a friendly face and voice at the ballpark, always willing to share his knowledge and stories. He'll be missed by all.
Ray Fosse, the strong-armed catcher whose career was upended when he was bowled over by Pete Rose at the 1970 All-Star Game, has died. He was 74.

When I did @Athletics
pre & post game, I’ll never forget how kind Ray Fosse was to me. First time I met him we were in the press box bathroom at the urinal & he said, “You’re that Zakariah kid right? I love what you do. If you need anything, you let me know”. Salt of the earth.
RIP to Ray Fosse after a battle with cancer. Best known for his collision with Pete Rose in the 1970 All-Star Game. Helped Marion High School in southern Illinois reach the 1965 state basketball Elite Eight. https://t.co/O3q8xMSnVJ
Talked to former #Athletics pitcher Dennis Eckersley about broadcaster Ray Fosse, who died today. Eck: "All I know is when I heard the news, it hurt. It kind of stops you. We had a major connection. He was like an older brother." Full story by @matthewkawahara
RIP Ray Fosse, 74. Fosse batted .307 w Cleveland & was AS in 1st full season 1970. An up-&-coming star before his injury in '70 ASG, he was AS again in '71 & later helped @athletics 2 WS titles in '73-4. His @sabr

Really sad to hear about Ray Fosse. Was always so warm and welcoming. I always learned more about the game of baseball every time I talked to him. He loved the game but especially loved his Oakland A's. Will miss you Ray. RIP
Years ago when I became a broadcaster in MLB Jack Buck told me one of the best things about working in the game is the good people you will meet. Today we lost one of the really good ones, Ray Fosse. May he Rest In Peace.
