Former Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher, Bruce Kison, has died at 68 after a battle with cancer, according to KDKA-TV.
“Kison pitched for the Pirates from 1971 to ’79 before pitching for five more years for the California Angels and one season with the Boston Red Sox. Kison finished his MLB career with 115 wins, a 3.66 ERA and 1,073 strikeouts in 1,809 2/3 innings pitched. He also recorded 12 saves.”
Following his playing days, Kison became a coach, and eventually a scout.
