Former Cardinals Ace Joaquin Andujar Dies at 62
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Joaquin Andujar, a star pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1980s, has died in his native Dominican Republic. He was 62.
The team said he died Tuesday. Leonardo Matos Berrido, president of the Dominican Baseball League, said the cause was diabetes complications.
The Cardinals planned a tribute to the fiery right-hander before playing the Cubs.
Andujar was a two-time All-Star during five seasons with the Cardinals from 1981-85. He had 20-win seasons in 1984 and '85 and led the National League in victories in '84 and was a member of the Cardinals World Series title team in 1982 and NL championship team in '85. Andjujar was ejected from Game 7 of the 1985 World Series.
Andujar also played for Houston and Oakland.
