Tigers' Frank Lary, winner of 23 games in 1961, dies at 87

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Frank Lary, the star Detroit Tigers pitcher who was called the Yankee Killer because of his success against New York's big-hitting lineup, has died at 87.

He died Wednesday night after being hospitalized in Tuscaloosa with pneumonia, nephew Joe Lary said.

Lary pitched with the Tigers from 1954-64 and led the American League with 21 wins in 1956. A two-time All-Star, he won the Gold Glove Award in 1961, when he went 23-9 and finished third in the Cy Young Award voting behind Whitey Ford and Warren Spahn.
