RIP LaMarr Hoyt

Recommended Posts

That guy could pitch!  Had trouble with those personal demons but wow could he pitch!  Crazy that he was involved in trades (both coming to the White Sox and leaving) that involved some legendary White Sox names!  RIP!

RIP. Very sad. He threw out the first pitch at a game a few years ago. His arm was shot. He couldn't throw the ball 10 feet.

I had forgotten that he was part of the Bucky Dent trade.

Look at Bucky Dent's career stats, and look what the Sox got for him. Veeck was probably most excited about the $200k, but supposedly that $200k was almost Ron Guidry before some Yankees scouts were listened to.

Without that Landrum homer, the Sox probably go to the World Series with Hoyt starting in the next game.  

He was outstanding in 1983.  RIP and prayers for his loved ones.

A great pitcher. Should have had a better career. Had the pleasure of interviewing him for a book I was doing years ago. Friendly guy. This is sad news.

I'm still haunted by that game and what could have been.

RIP.

It's been a long time since I had faith in a starter like I had in Lamarr.  He was money in the bank.

RIP big guy, you come from one of my favorite yrs as a Sox fan. Sadly many entertainers be they sports figures, rock stars or actors and actresses are starting to pass away :(

Ive felt that way with watching Lynn at times, albeit they pitch(ed) differently. Buehrle too.

Find myself oddly attached to this story. 66 is young. Knew the name growing up for sure; but obviously a lot more to it outside of the lines.
