Rick Camp, former Braves pitcher, dead at age 60
Former major-league hurler Rick Camp has passed away at the age of 60, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
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.
