Remembering Paul Splittorff
We were deeply saddened to learn this morning of the passing of Royals’ Hall of Fame pitcher and broadcaster Paul Splittorff due to complications from melanoma. The all-time winningest pitcher in franchise history passed away at the family home in Blue Springs, MO.
“Splitt” was a member of the franchise from the beginning – he was a 25th round pick in 1968 out of Morningside College in Iowa. He debuted with Kansas City in 1970 and went on to win 166 games before retiring in 1984. Here are some photos of Paul:
