Former MLB outfielder, manager Bill Virdon dies at 90

PITTSBURGH (AP) Bill Virdon, the steady centerfielder who won the 1955 National League Rookie of the Year for St. Louis and guided the Houston Astros to three straight postseason appearances as a manager, has died. He was 90.

Virdon died at the Lester E. Cox Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri according to Virdon's wife Shirley. No cause of death was given.

Virdon was a career .267 hitter in 12 seasons with St. Louis and Pittsburgh, winning a World Series in 1960 with the Pirates and a Gold Glove in 1962. He retired for good in 1968 and went into coaching, going 995-921 during a 13-year managerial career that featured stints with Pittsburgh, the New York Yankees, Houston and Montreal.
