Cleveland’s ‘Sax Man,’ Maurice Reedus, Jr. passes away

CLEVELAND - For years, you could hear Maurice Reedus, Jr. playing his soulful saxophone sounds on Cleveland's streets.

He was especially popular before and after Cleveland Indians games - win or lose, it was always a treat to hear him as fans left Progressive Field.

Joe Siebert was the director of a documentary about Reedus, called "The Sax Man," that debuted in 2014. He confirmed the death Monday.
