Former MLB Pitcher Mark Littell Dead at 69

Another sports figure is dead this week.

Mark Littell, who pitched for both the Cardinals and Royals, has passed away.

He was 69 years old.

Gone

Littell has always been plagued by the one pitch that has wrongly defined his career.

Even though he had a stellar playoff in 1976, he is probably best remembered for serving up a home run pitch to Chris Chambliss.

That would propel the Yankees to their first American League championship in a dozen years.

The fact that he had a 2.08 ERA out of the bullpen that year seemed to make little difference to anyone.

Littell played for the Kansas City Royals in 1973 and from 1975 to 77.

He then suited up for the Cardinals from 1978 through the 1982 seasons.

The Royals held a moment of silence for Littell after his death was announced…

Throughout his career, he was a respectable 32-31 with a 3.32 ERA and had notched 56 saves.

His career was ended early due to problems with bone spurs.

Rest in peace.
