Just saw a report that Bob Forsch, long time major league pitcher and Billings Mustangs pitching coach, collapsed at his Tampa home Thursday night and passed away.

Bob Forsch, one of a handful of pitchers to have two no-hit games and the third winningest pitcher in Cardinals history, collapsed at his home near Tampa Fla., and died suddenly Thursday night.

Early reports from his wife, Jan, were that Forsch, 61, had suffered an aneurysm in his upper chest.

A major loss to the Reds minor league system and to baseball. The thoughts and prayers of Redleg Nation go out to the Forsch family.
