Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Sparky Anderson, who won three World Series titles as manager of the Detroit Tigers and Cincinnati Reds, has been placed in hospice care because of complications resulting from dementia.

The 76-year-old Anderson is at his home in Thousand Oaks, California, his family said in a statement.

Anderson was a Major League Baseball manager from 1970 to 1995, winning 2,194 games. He led the Reds to World Series titles in 1975-76 and managed the Tigers to the championship in 1984.

Anderson’s 1,331 wins over 17 seasons with the Tigers are the most in franchise history. He ranks sixth in career wins and was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 2000.
