    Joaquin Andujar passed away today. That leaves the 1982 World Series battery for Game 7 both gone. Tremendous pitcher, lots of fun to watch. First Dominican pitcher to win a WS game in fact. Sad day.

    Barney Schultz, a relief pitcher who was a member of the World Champion 1964 St. Louis Cardinals, died on his 90th birthday.

    Schultz came up with the Cardinals for a cup of coffee in 1955, and was also wearing the birds-on-bat on his uniform in 1964-65, coming over to St. Louis in the Lou Brock trade. In between, he was briefly with the Tigers in 1959, and was on the Cubs' mound staff from 1961 through the mid-season 1964 swap.

    An error on my part...Schultz was not part of the Brock trade, but went to the Cardinals in mid-1963, not mid-1964.

    Also, his brith/death date was September 6th.

    Alex Monchak, who played in 19 games for the 1940 Phillies, died at age 98.

    Fans from the 1970s and 80s will remember Monchak as one of manager Chuck Tanner's coaches for the White Sox and Pirates.
