And while the team (which inducted Sutton into their Hall of Fame as a broadcaster in 2015) said in January 2020 there was "an open door" for Sutton to return for selected games if health permitted, the pandemic derailed those plans.

"He worked as hard as anyone I've ever known and he treated those he encountered with great respect", Daron Sutton wrote of his father on Twitter. For all these things, I am very grateful.

During his career as a right-handed pitcher, he won 324 games, including 58 shutouts and earned the seventh place spot on baseball's all-time strikeout list with 3,574. He's one of only 10 pitchers who are part of both the 300-win and 3,000-strikeout clubs.

Known for his durability, he joined the Dodgers as a rookie in 1966 and pitched at least 200 innings in 20 of his first 21 seasons.

Sutton played baseball at Gulf Coast Community College and Whittier College before the Los Angeles Dodgers signed him as a free agent in September of 1964, just months before the first MLB Draft.

Included in the roundtable are Seth Emerson (Georgia), Josh Kendall (South Carolina), Aaron Suttles (Alabama) and G. In addition to Pruitt's dismissal, athletic director Phillip Fulmer has chose to step down.

Dodger President Stan Kasten said in a statement, "Don left an indelible mark on the Dodger franchise during his 16 seasons in Los Angeles and many of his records continue to stand to this day".

Sutton spent 16 of his 23 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, first from 1966 to 1980 and then for his final season in 1988.

Sutton earned enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998 while his second life in baseball was in full swing. He did some broadcasting work for NBC's postseason coverage while still playing (particularly in 1979, 1983 and 1987), then started his full-time broadcasting career in 1989, working both Dodgers' telecasts on Z Channel and Braves' telecasts on TBS. Some years were better than others - he made four All-Star teams with the Dodgers from 1972 to 1977.

The Braves said they were "deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend". "A generation of Braves fans came to know his voice". A 300-game victor who was a four-time All-Star, Don brought an unmatched knowledge of the game and his sharp wit to his calls. Sutton was inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame for his TV and radio work, even though he never played for the Atlanta team.

In addition to his son, Don Sutton is survived by his wife, Mary, and daughters Staci and Jacquie. They were Lou Brock, Whitey Ford, Bob Gibson, Al Kaline, Joe Morgan, Phil Niekro and Tom Seaver.
