  • Champ Summers, Pedro Borbon and Dave Philley, former Giants players, pass away

    Summers:

    John “Champ” Summers, a retired 10-year Major League Baseball player, arrived in Ocala 13 years ago for a very specific reason.

    “My husband wanted to live on a golf course, to get up in the morning and go play golf,” said Joy Summers, his wife of 27 years.

    Champ Summers, 66, died Thursday after a long battle with kidney cancer. He had lived at Spruce Creek Preserve since 1999, when he and his wife moved from La Jolla, Calif.

    Borbon:

    Former Reds pitcher Pedro Borbon has died at age 65, according to his business agent Charles Sotto from complications of cancer.

    Borbon is the Reds' leader in career pitching appearances with 531, and from 1970-78 appeared in more games than any other National League pitcher. He was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2010.

    Philley:

    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.
