An iconic baseball manager is place into hospice care suffering from dimentia, reports.

Read some of Sparky's baseball statistics after the jump.

The 76-year-old Anderson was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 2000, culminating a major league career that included one nondescript season as a player and an historic run as a manager.

He won 2,194 games as a manager, the third-highest total in major league history trailing Connie Mack and John McGraw. Anderson was the first manager to win World Series titles in both leagues and the only manager to lead two franchises in career wins.
