  • Lee Howard - 1946-1947 Pirates LHP passes away at age 94.

    Howard's death occurred 4/24/2018, but it was not reported to Wikipedia until just now, 13 months later. He was 94. Howard was 0-1, with a 2.25 e.r.a. in 5 major league games in two September call-ups (1946 & 1947). On September 29, 1946 Howard pitched a great game, but lost to Cincinnati's Johnny Vander Meer 1-0. Howard pitched a Complete Game, but took the loss when he was outdueled by the Reds' VANDER MEER and he yielded a seventh inning RBI single to Cincinnati's Bob Usher, in what would become Howard's only major league decision.
