The Atlanta Journal-Constitution passes along word that former major-league pitcher Rick Camp has died at the age of 60. Camp died Thursday morning at his Georgia home.

Camp, a Georgia native, spent his entire nine-year major-league career with the Braves. He went 56-49 with a 3.37 ERA (115 ERA+). Camp established himself as a shutdown reliever before transitioning into a swingman over the latter years of his career.

As effective as he was on the mound, though, Camp's most famous moment came with a bat in his hands. Let's take you back to July 4, 1985. It's the 18th inning against the Mets, and it's about 4 o'clock in the morning ...

Our condolences to the Camp family and the Braves.
