Statement on Dave McNally
Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement regarding the passing of former All-Star pitcher, Dave McNally:
"All of baseball mourns the untimely passing of Dave McNally. Dave will be remembered as one of the aces of those great Baltimore Orioles pitching staffs in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as well as for his role in the overturning of the reserve clause. He was a great left-hander who won 20 or more games in four consecutive seasons. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends."
