Hall of Fame Pitcher Bruce Sutter Dead at 69

One of the legends of the game is now gone.

Bruce Sutter, who was inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame in 2006, has died.

He was 69 years old.

Sad Day

Sutter played a key role in helping the Cardinals win their championship in 1982.

National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Chairman Jane Forbes Clark stated, "Bruce Sutter was so honored when he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006, and since that time his kindness, his love for Cooperstown and his humility sparkled every time he returned to the Hall of Fame.

"The Hall of Fame family will forever celebrate his achievements on the field and remember his passion for his family and friends. We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Jamye, and his children."

The Cardinals also saluted Sutter...

Sutter paved the way for relievers to get into the Hall as the first non-starter to have the honor.

He started with the Cubs in 1976 and was traded to the Cardinals after the 1980 season, winding up with the Braves for the last two seasons of his career.

He would finish his career with 300 saves and a stingy 2.83 ERA.

Rest in peace, Bruce, for you were truly one of the greats of the game.
