Tough time for baseball. Don't know the circumstances but he was under a truck he was working on apparently.

Wow. Just watched video of him pitching a game on the new MLB channel. Too bad.

On April 12, which was the day before he was found dead Fidrychwas inducted into the Polish American Hall of Fame. Odd that nobody had heard his name since the early 80's and then two mentions in 2 days. I think The Bird might have been the weirdest player to ever step on a major league baseball field. Jose Lima is in a close second, followed by Mike Fetters in 3rd.
