Gammon passed Friday at his daughter's home in Costa Mesa, California, surrounded by family and friends, after a battle with cancer of the adrenal glands and liver, according to the Los Angeles Times.
While Gammon was famed for his role as the manager of the Cleveland Indians in the much-loved baseball comedy, he also had notable roles in a variety of film and TV projects, including Silverado and Cold Mountain, and played father Nick Bridges on Nash Bridges for five years.
But the well-known character actor didn't just make a name for himself onscreen.
A Los Angeles theater mainstay, Gammon co-founded the MET Theater and garnered numerous LA Drama Critics Circle Awards for acting and directing.
