    Earl Bass, who set national collegiate pitching records with the South Carolina Gamecocks, died of cancer at age 65. He went 34-3 under Coach Bobby Richardson, who followed his great Yankee career with a momentous coaching career that led South Carolina from a "nothing" baseball program (no stands, even!) to a 2cd-place national finish with Bass dominating on the mound. Bass was local to the Columbia area and went to high-school less than 10 miles from the gamecocks' field. He won 23 straight decisions over two years, which is still # 2 all-time.

    Ironically, he never pitched in MLB despite 4 years and a winning record in the minors.
