Former Yankee All-Star Reliever Dies at 88
NEW YORK (AP) — Former All-Star pitcher Luis Arroyo has died. He was 88.
The New York Yankees say Arroyo's daughter, Milagros, told the team Wednesday night that he had died earlier in the day in Puerto Rico. She said he had been diagnosed last month with cancer.
Arroyo helped pitch the Yankees to the 1961 World Series championship. The 5-foot-8 lefty was 15-5 with a major league-leading 29 saves that season, then earned another victory in the Series against Cincinnati.
