Former Royals pitcher Steve Mingori dies at 64

Damn…Sidearming/sideboarding Steve Mingori and his Hapshash and the Coloured Coat era Topps card.

Former Royals pitcher Steve Mingori, 64, died Thursday of natural causes.

Mingori, a Kansas City native, got to pitch for his hometown team during 1973-79, making 264 of his 385 career big-league appearances in a Royals uniform.

In addition, Mingori made seven postseason relief appearances for the Royals.

“He’s one of those guys teammates joked around with,” Royals Hall of Famer Frank White said. “He was a real good teammate. He was a lefty, had a screwball.

“Steve is from KC, played in the B.J. (Ban Johnson) League. He was really excited when he came to Kansas City to play. He was part of our ’77 team. He was real effective.”

Thanks to Bruce Markusen.

Geez, Stobbs, Ricketts, Mingori and Murcer. What happened to the "die in threes" stuff? I liked Mingori, as he was an unheralded Strat O Matic star for me one year. I called him K.C.'s Mingo, because we had a mover named Mingo here. RIP, Steve.
