At 70, after a six-year battle with Alzheimer's, former major league pitcher Woodie Fryman. Before becoming a tobacco farmer in his native Kentucky, the lefthander enjoyed an 18-year career with six clubs, including two tours with the Expos—Montreal inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 1995—and an unforgettable two-month stint with the Tigers in 1972. After Detroit claimed him off waivers in August, the 32-year-old Fryman, who had never won more than 12 games, went 10--3 with a 2.06 ERA in 14 starts. He clinched the AL East crown against the Red Sox on the penultimate day of the season. "I remember walking off the mound in the eighth with a 3--1 lead and the Tiger Stadium fans gave me a standing ovation," he said in 1986. "It was the greatest moment of my career."
