  • Former Cubs star Phil Cavarretta passes away

    CHICAGO -- Phil Cavarretta, the 1945 National League MVP who led the Chicago Cubs to their last World Series appearance, has died. He was 94.

    Cavarretta died Saturday evening in Lilburn, Ga., of complications from a stroke, according to his grandson, Jeffrey Brown, of Lubbock, Texas.

    Brown told The Associated Press in a phone interview that Cavarretta died in a hospice care center. Brown said Cavarretta had been battling leukemia and suffered the stroke several days ago.
