  • Barney Schultz, Jim Fanning and Jim King, former Cubs players, pass away

    Reliever Barney Schultz pitched for the Cubs from 1961 to 1963, posting a 2.70 ERA and 155 ERA+ in his first year with the club.

    Barney Schultz, a Beverly native who helped the St. Louis Cardinals win the 1964 World Series, died Sunday. He was 89.

    Born George Warren Schultz in 1926, he was a right-handed relief specialist during a major league pitching career that spanned 11 years, 1955-65. Schultz compiled a 20-20 record with 35 career saves, 14 of which came in 1964 when the Cardinals rallied in September to win the National League pennant.


    Jim Fanning played for the Cubs from 1954 to 1957. He was a backup catcher. He died in April, but his death was not reported here.
