MLB News: Former All-Star pitcher Bob Shaw passes away at 77
by Alex Schuhart on October 25, 2010

Pitcher Bob Shaw, who was an All-Star in 1962, passed away at age 77 on September 22.

Over the course of an 11-year major league career, Shaw went 108-98 with a 3.52 ERA. In his All-Star 1962 season, he went 15-9 with a 2.80 ERA.

Though 1962 was his only All-Star year, it was perhaps not his best—in 1959, he went 18-6 with a 2.69 ERA and in 1965, he went 16-9 with a 2.64 ERA.

Shaw pitched for the Detroit Tigers (1957-58), Chicago White Sox (1958-61), Kansas City Athletics (1961), Milwaukee Braves (1962-63), San Francisco Giants (1964-66), New York Mets (1966-67) and Chicago Cubs (1967).

Interestingly, Shaw was traded by the White Sox to the Athletics for multiple players, including Al Pilarcik—who coincidentally died just two days before Shaw.
