Preston was a Dodger. He wore the uniform with class, dignity and character. When I became manager in 1977 he was on my coaching staff and was a tremendous help to me as I began my career.
The man spent his entire life in baseball. He came from Cuba and got the opportunity to work for the Dodgers. Al Campanais gave him an opporunity to be in professional bsaeball. He managed at least three major league teams and was a credit to the game.
We are very sorry to see him pass away. He wore the Dodger uniform with pride and dignity. He has helped a lot of people in our game and he will be missed.
