MLB | Tug McGraw Dies
The AP's Rob Maaddi reports former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Tug McGraw died from brain cancer on Monday, Jan. 5, at the age of 59. McGraw passed away at the home of his son, country music singer Tim McGraw, near Nashville. McGraw had been fighting the disease ever since undergoing surgery for a malignant tumor in March. "We lost a part of Mets history tonight," said Mets owner Fred Wilpon. "We'll all miss him dearly." McGraw made the phrase "You Gotta Believe" popular in 1973 as the Mets went on to win the World Series. Funeral arrangements were not yet available. KFFL offers its condolences to McGraw's friends and family.
