    Baseball great Don Newconbe Passes at 92.

    R.I P. One of the greats that had to pitch until late in the game. No middle relief like now.

    One of the greats. In the 1950's he was basically the best pitcher out there.

    Newcombe was the best hitting pitcher ever in baseball. Lifetime average of 271 with 15 Home Runs. He was used many times as a pinch hitter. Not counting Babe Ruth of course.

    A pioneer who paved the way for so many others by dealing with hatred and bigotry, making sure that the generations after him would not have to experience half of the hatred that he received. Cheers Don.
