  • Former Expos pitcher Wayne Twitchell passes away

    When former major league pitcher Wayne Twitchell would tell his version
    of how he met his wife of 39 years, the story involved her seeking
    directions and him providing help.

    In truth, both were out with friends when they met at a Southwest Portland pub.

    "He was trying to protect my reputation," Barbara Twitchell said with a laugh. "It was 1970."

    chance meeting produced a marriage that stretched well beyond the
    10-year major league career of the former Wilson High School star, who
    died of cancer Thursday at 62.

    Along the way, Twitchell, who was
    inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2006, touched many
    other lives as a coach and friend, always willing to lend a helping hand
    and teach those who wanted to learn.
