Dallas Green, who won a World Series as a manager of the Philadelphia Phillies and paved the way for lights at Wrigley Field as president of the Chicago Cubs, died Wednesday at 82.

No cause of death was announced, but Green had been suffering from kidney failure.

Green spent 62 years in baseball as a player, manager, general manager, team president, minor league director and scout.

"The game lost a great baseball man today," Phillies chairman David Montgomery said in a statement released by the team. "Dallas held many different positions in baseball, and his passion and love for the game was evident in every role he played."
