Former Dodger All-Star Stan Williams passes away at 84

Former Dodger two-time All-Star and World Series champion Stan Williams passed away Saturday morning at the age of 84 after battling a cardiopulmonary illness.
Williams, one of the original members of the Dodger team that moved to Los Angeles in 1958, spent the first five years of his 14-year Major League career with the Dodgers. He won a World Series as a player with the Dodgers in 1959 and as a pitching coach with the Reds in 1990.

In 1959, Williams pitched three scoreless innings in the tiebreaker series against the Milwaukee Braves to help send the Dodgers to the World Series, where he pitched two scoreless innings. Williams, nicknamed “The Big Hurt,” was part of an early 60s Dodger rotation that included Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax and Johnny Podres. In 1960, Williams was an All-Star while going 14–10 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He was traded to the Yankees after the 1962 season and made stops as a player in Cleveland (1965–69), Minnesota (1970–71), St. Louis (1971) and Boston (1972).
