2014: Hall of Fame outfielder Ralph Kiner, who played most of his 10-season major-league career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, dies of natural causes at age 91 in Rancho Mirage, California. Kiner hit 369 home runs in a career shortened by injuries and his slugging outpaced all of his National League contemporaries between the years 1946 and 1952. He also served as a radio broadcaster for the New York Mets from the team's inception until his death.
