Hall of Famer Monte Irvin passed away yesterday at the age of 96.

Before the way was opened for Irvin to play Major League Baseball, he was a Newark Eagle.

NJ.com columnist Jerry Izenberg reflects on that part of Irvin’s baseball career, while the Associated Press offers up a more general obituary.
