Ex-Islanders manager Hartsfield dies

Roy Hartsfield, who managed the Hawaii Islanders of the Pacific Coast League in the 1970s, died Saturday at his daughter's Atlanta-area home, according to MLB.com. He was 85.

Hartsfield's death was the result of complications from liver cancer, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which first reported the news.

Hartsfield was also the first manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, from 1977 through 1979, compiling a 166-318 record for the expansion team.

In Hawaii, Hartsfield led the Islanders to a 302-275 record from 1973 through '76 and captured league championships in '75 and '76.

Hartsfield also played in the majors for the Boston Braves from 1950 to '52.
