Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Virgil Trucks passed away this weekend. He was 95.

Trucks threw two no-hitters and was a two-time All-Star during a 17-year Major League career.

In recent years, he seemed to genuinely enjoy receiving fan mail and signing autographs for those who were interested in baseball’s earlier days.

R.I.P.
