Don Cherry comments on the loss of a Leafs legend
BY RYAN SMITHERAM AUGUST 20, 2023 (11:16)
After a few days had passed, former hockey icon Don Cherry took to social media to share a story about the passing of Bobby Baun before saying goodbye in his own way.
"Sad to hear of the passing of Bobby Baun. In my rookie year in Hershey I was minding my own business watching a fight and Bobby came up behind me and put me in a choke hold. He taught me a big lesson that game. Always know who's on the ice. Godspeed Bobby," said Cherry on Twitter.
Cherry, who was famously fired over a controversial comment that appeared to be directed towards foreigners planting roots in Canada, has shifted from television to the podcasting sphere following his dismissal from CBC/Sportsnet. He now runs his Grapevine podcast with his family.
Baun was a 4-time Stanley Cup Champion with the Leafs in his career and played parts of 14 seasons in Toronto.
