Philley spent the equivalent of about two seasons with the Orioles, hitting .267 with nine home runs and 86 RBi in 228 games. He spent all of 1961 with the team and was one of their best players off the bench.

Dave Philley, a switch-hitting outfielder who still holds the major league record for most consecutive pinch hits, died Thursday in his hometown of Paris at the age of 91.

Reportedly, he was found slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle at his ranch.

Services are pending at Fry-Gibbs Funeral Home in Paris.
