About Fred Claire
Fred Claire had a route in every city. At home or on the road, he had to get his six miles in every day. As the Dodgers’ general manager from 1987 to 1998, Claire was the rare AARP-eligible jogger crossing the Roebling Bridge into Kentucky from Cincinnati, or tracing the bank of the Allegheny River outside Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, running wherever the baseball schedule took him.
Now 81, Claire remembers being diligent about wearing sunscreen.
“But not the gloss on my lip,” he said.
By January 2015, what looked like a harmless spot on Claire’s lip turned out to be squamous cell carcinoma, a cancerous manifestation of hundreds of days spent in the sun. He underwent a minor operation to have the cells removed, [but] the cancer returned in August, this time worse than before.
