Andy Pafko dies
Former Milwaukee Brave and Chicago Cub was 92
Andy Pafko, a four-time All-Star who played on the last Chicago Cubs team to reach the World Series, has died at age 92.
Pafko died Tuesday of apparent natural causes, according to Kraig Pike, the director of the Pike Funeral Home in Bridgman, Mich.
Pafko also played for the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Milwaukee Braves, and played in four World Series during 17 years in the major leagues.
He was the Brooklyn left fielder in the 1951 National League playoff game when Bobby Thomson's pennant-winning homer, the so-called "shot heard `round the world," flew over his head.
