Bill Fleming Died in Reno

Click on Career Record to Enlarge

Gary Fink just emailed me that Coast League pitcher Bill Fleming passed away on June 4, 2006 in Reno, Nevada. Fleming led the league in saves on two occasions. In 1948, Portland manager Jim Turner converted him from a starter to a relief specialist, and for the next several seasons expierenced a good deal of success out of the bullpen.
