"I hope I die on the field," he says. "I hope when I walk to change the pitcher, I drop dead and that's it. I know my family would be so happy that it happened on the field. They wouldn't feel bad because that's what I've always wanted to do. You die on the field — good luck, get him out of here, next man."
Sure its a romantic (and morbid) thought that Ozzie has there, ya know, to die doing what you love to do, but I'm also sure there's plenty of Tigers and Indians fans that would love to make that a reality for Ozzie. He's not the most liked manager outside of the south side. Some north siders might even be salivating at the thought of him dropping dead at the pitcher's mound.
Not that Ozzie would ever watch his words, but he might want to rethink his exit strategy on this world.
