    Bob Lee, a RHP who shined during his first couple of years in The Show, died on 3/25 at age 82.

    He was a solid reliever for the Angels from 1964-66, and made the AL All-Star team. This honor was during a season where he finished with a 9-7 record, a 1.92 EA and 23 saves. His last 2 seasons were spent primarily with the Reds, although he began 1967 by appearing in 4 games with the Dodgers.

    Al Kaline, a lifetime Detroit Tiger who was among the most beloved of living HoFers, died on 4/6 at age 85. No cause of death has been given as of yet.

    A lifetime .297 hitter, Kaline became the youngest MLB player ever to win a league batting title, checking in with a .340 average in 1955. He finished his MLB career with 3007 hits, 399 HR and 1583 RBI. He was inducted into Cooperstown in 1980.

    Having never played a game in the minors, Kaline's first MLB game was on 6/25/53, and for that season, he wore #25 on his uniform, after which he switched to the #6 jersey we all remember at the beginning of the 1954 season.

    Bobby Mitchell, an offensive skill player for 11 years with the Browns and Redskins, died on 4/5 at age 84.

    A Pro Football Hall of Famer and 4-time Pro Bowler, Mitchell was proficient both in rushing and receiving. A 7th round draft pick by Cleveland, he starred for then for 4 seasons, after which he was dealt to Washington, where he played his final 7 years, retiring after the 1968 season. Over his 11 years in the NFL, he never missed a regular season game.
