    Former??Chicago Cubs?and Montreal Expos (and many others)?pitcher Scott Sanderson passed away after his battle with cancer at the age of 62. He had also suffered a stroke last year, and had his voice box removed during his final months.

    ??The 19-year??MLB?veteran touched the hearts of many, and was one of the most wonderful people in the game of baseball across his long tenure.

    Sanderson spent 11 years of his career with the Cubs and Expos. He also spent time with the Angles, Yankees, Giants, Athletics, and White Sox.

    Over the course of his career in the majors, Sanderson compiled quite the resume. He won 163 games, struck out 1,611 batters, managed an impressive 3.84 ERA, and was selected to the 1991 All-Star game as a member of the New York Yankees.

    ??Scott Sanderson was more than just a baseball player. He was a quality human being. He cared about his teammates and it showed.?Former teammates constantly rave about his kind personality.

    His impressive stat sheet will never do his character justice. Sanderson was taken from the baseball world all too soon, and his legacy will never be forgotten.
