Damn, I'm feeling older and older with all these players dying.



ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Leon Wagner, a former outfielder who hit 211 home runs in a 12-year big-league career, has died, the Anaheim Angels said Tuesday. He was 69.

The Angels said Wagner, who played for them from in their first three years of existence -- from 1961-63 -- died of natural causes Saturday in Los Angeles.
