Mel Stottlemyre (Jan. 13, age 77)
Known as a dominant right-handed pitcher, Stottlemyre reached the big leagues with New York in 1964 and stayed with them for the rest of his 11-year career. Despite being on the winningest club in baseball history, Stottlemyre only went to one World Series, in his first year. He’d lose that series in a decisive Game 7. During his time in the majors, he went 164-139 with a career 2.97 ERA. He’d be an All-Star in five seasons and receive MVP votes in four. He also hit seven homers in his career, including one inside-the-park grand slam. Despite his individual success, Stottlemyre retired without a ring, joining the Yankees two years after their 1962 championship and leaving three years before their 1977 title.
