    Philley was their starting rightfielder in 1954 and part of 1955 - coincidentally, Narleski's first two seasons with the team.

    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.
