Former Phillies executive Clothier passes away at 66

Former Phillies executive Jerry Clothier died Saturday of prostate cancer. He was 66.

Clothier was once the Phillies senior vice president for business and finance and also was a long-time member of the Pension Committee of the Major League Baseball Players Benefit Plan.

"Jerry Clothier served as a trustee for the MLB Players Benefit Plan with insight, diligence and integrity,"   Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Michael Weiner said in a statement. "All members of the Plan – current players, former players, and their families – are indebted to him for that service.  Jerry will be missed by all who had the privilege to have known him.  He was a wonderful man."
