DENVER (AP) -Bob Howsam, a former general manager of the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals and a founder of the Denver Broncos, died Tuesday in Sun City, Ariz., his son said.
Howsam was 89 and had heart problems, said his son, Robert Howsam of Colorado Springs.
In a career that bridged two sports and several leagues, Howsam's guiding principle was that the fans came first, his son said.
``He felt like hey, the players are really important, yes, the owners (are important), but the fans are No. 1,'' the son said.
Howsam said his father lived in a retirement home in Sun City with his wife, Janet Howsam. He would have turned 90 on Feb. 28.
