Carl Culmer Sr. issued the following statement:
“It was with profound sadness that I learned of the death of former Bahamian Major League Baseball player Ed Armbrister after a prolonged illness. He was 72.
“Armbrister was a member of the Cincinnati Reds from 1973 to 1977. He made his contributions to two World Series championships for the Big Red Machine and was inducted into the Bahamas National Sports Hall of Fame.
“He inspired countless young Bahamians to pursue their dreams in baseball and professional sports. On behalf of the Free National Movement I offer condolences to the entire Armbrister family for their loss.”
