Hall of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn has died at the age of 82.
Spahn: Demon left-hander
A mainstay for the Boston and Milwaukee Braves over 21 seasons, the left-hander won 363 games at an earned run average of 3.09 during a superb career.
"He was a fighter and a winner," said New York Yankees manager Joe Torre, a former Spahn team-mate.
"He made catching in the big leagues a lot easier for me and one of my biggest thrills to this day was catching his 300th victory in 1961."
Spahn, inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 1973, combined with fellow pitcher Johnny Sain to inspire the catchphrase: "Spahn and Sain and pray for rain."
The NL Cy Young Award winner in 1957, Spahn pitched two no-hitters in his career, the last a 1-0 triumph over the San Francisco Giants in 1961, aged 40.
