Rick Mahler, who won nearly 100 games during a 13-year career spent mostly with the Atlanta Braves, died Wednesday. He was 51.
Mahler died of a heart attack at home in Jupiter, Fla., while preparing for his second season as a minor league pitching coach for the New York Mets, the team said
Mahler was the kind of guy Cincinnati fans love the most - not a ton of talent, but a workhorse nonetheless. Rick was a member of the 1990 World Championship team, and was a class act by all accounts. It's sad to see him go at such a young age.
