KC Royal Great Paul Splittorff Dies

KSCB News - May 25, 2011 10:29 am

The Kansas City Royals say Paul Splittorff, the winningest pitcher in the team’s history, has died.

The team announced in a news release that the 64-year-old Splittorff died early Wednesday from complications from melanoma at his home in the Kansas City suburb of Blue Springs.

A left-hander, Splittorff won 166 games in a 15-year career. In 1973, he became the first Royals pitcher to win 20 games. He retired in 1984.

After his retirement, he worked as a broadcaster for the Royals and college basketball.
