Paul Splittorff 1946-2011

The KC Star is reporting that the Royals Hall of Famer has passed away.

I'm of course old enough to remember his pitching career, which means he's been a part of every summer of my life, on the field and later in the booth. If you never got to see him play then I feel for you, because he was a joy to watch.

Rest in peace Splitt, and thanks for the memories.

i remember Paul Splittorf as a quality pitcher who represented the KC Royals with professionalism and tenacity ... 166 wins is pretty darn good, and speaks for istelf!
he pitched a "complete game" ...
