Former Cleveland pitcher Clint Brown passes away in Rocky River, Ohio, at the age of 52.
The right-hander Brown spent ten seasons with the Indians in two tours. He debuted in 1928 and spent parts of eight seasons with the Indians through 1935. He led the league in shutouts in 1930 with three and had a league low of 1.7 walks per nine innings in 1932 and 1933.
He was purchased by the Chicago White Sox from the Indians in 1936 and would spend five years with the Pale Hose before being traded back to Cleveland prior to the 1941 season. He spent that season and part of the 1942 season with the Tribe before his release on June 16th.
