Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Bob Welch passed away today at the age of 57 in Seal Beach, California. Welch’s cause of death has not yet been released.

The right-handed pitcher played for two organizations for his entire career. He played for the Dodgers from 1978 to 1987 and played for the Oakland Athletics from 1988 until 1994.

Welch is well known for winning the Cy Young Award in 1990 as part of the Oakland Athletics. He posted an incredible record of 27-6 and is the last major league pitcher to have at least 25 wins in a season. Welch also had the honor of winning three World Series rings in his career in the big leagues. He was a part of the 1981 Dodgers team that won the World Series and the 1989 Athletics team that swept the San Francisco Giants. Welch won his third ring as a pitching coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001.

Welch ended his playing career with a record of 211-146 with an astounding ERA of just 3.47.

He is survived by his sons Dylan (25) and Riley (23), daughter Kelly (18) and former wife Mary Ellen.
