Written By: warped on 03/30/13 at 3:28 pm

Long-time big leaguer Bob Turley has died on Saturday at age 82 following a bout with liver cancer, his son, Terry, confirmed to Ian Duncan of The Baltimore Sun.

Turley, a right-hander, pitched for four teams from 1951-63, including eight years with the Yankees. He won the 1958 AL Cy Young award after going 21-7 with a 2.97 ERA and a league-leading 19 complete games for New York. Turley retired with a 101-85 career record with a 3.64 ERA.

"Bullet Bob" spent the 1954 season with the Orioles and pitched the franchise's first game in Baltimore after moving from St. Louis. He was traded to the Yankees along with Don Larsen following that season.

He won a few world series with the powerhouse Yankees.
