Sad news out of Kentucky.
According to the Associated Press, former major league pitcher Woodie Fryman passed away this weekend at the age of 70.
Fryman played 18 major league seasons from 1966-1983, spending time with the Expos, Pirates, Phillies, Tigers, Reds and Cubs. He had four career one-hitters and he left the game after the ’83 season with a 3.77 career ERA.
His best season as a starter — he pitched in relief later in his career — came in 1968, when he was a 28-year-old with the Phillies. He finished the year with a 2.78 ERA and 151 strikeouts in 213.2 innings.
The Expos inducted him into their Hall of Fame in 1995 before relocating to Washington, D.C.
