Hall of Fame Pitcher and former U.S. Senator, Jim Bunning died at the age of 85 today.
A fearless hurler who toiled in the Majors for seventeen seasons, Bunning was a nine time All Star and one of the few to throw a perfect game. He retired from baseball with a 224 and 184 record with 2,855 Strikeouts. Historically speaking he was the second player in MLB history to record 100 Wins and 1,000 Strikeouts in each league, mostly through efforts with the Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies respectively.
Bunning would enter the Baseball Hall of Fame via the Veterans Committee in 1996.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Jim Bunning at this time.
