New York, NY ( - Frank Cashen, the general manager of the New York Mets' 1986 World Series-winning club, died Monday at the age of 91.

Cashen was also part of the Baltimore Orioles front office when they won the World Series in 1966 and '70.

"Frank Cashen revitalized our franchise when he took over in 1980 as general manager and helped engineer us to a world championship in 1986," Mets owner Fred Wilpon said. "I dealt with Frank on a daily basis and he was a man of integrity and great passion. No one had a more diverse career than Frank. He was also a lawyer, sports writer and marketing executive. His accomplishments will always be an integral part of our team history."
