Phillies President Issues Statement on the Death of Sara L. "Sally" Buck


"The Phillies are very sorry to learn of Sally's passing. Sally and her late husband Alexander (Whip) Buck had been a part of the Phillies ownership group since December of 1981. Whip and Sally provided consistent support for the organization both as partners and fans. Sally was loved by many in the Phillies organization from front office staff, to players, to fellow owners. Her passing leaves the club with a profound sense of loss. Her presence at Citizens Bank Park will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

"Our heartfelt condolences are expressed to Sally's sons Pete and Sandy, daughters-in-law Nancy and Sissy, and loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

"As her sons Pete and Sandy said, 'Sally always put family and others first, ever humble and selfless, and deeply committed to her community, her friends and those in need. She modeled love, strength, virtue, good cheer and wisdom.'"
