    Former Royals pitcher Splittorff fighting terminal cancer

    Man, what a horrible thing to hear. I've met him and talked to him several times. One of the nicest guys you will find. He's struggled physically for the last couple years but I had no idea this was going on. Rumors were stroke-related. What a class act. I will hope for a miracle.

    He was an awesome Big 8 and 12 announcer. That's terrible news.

    Absolutely terrible news Split was a great pitcher for the Royals when they were good.

    I will pray for Paul and his family....

    That's too bad.....I really enjoyed listening to his commentary during our basketball games. He was good even though he was usually paired up with that dope Dave Armstrong.

    And the catcher off that team too. Darrel somebody I think. That's awful I can't recall his last name.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Former Royals pitcher Splittorff fighting terminal cancer

    Sad story. Split was the first major leaguer I ever met when I was about 7 or 8. The Royals used to do the winter caravan to Des Moines and I got his autograph along with Al Fitzmorris at Merle Hay Mall.
