Angels hall of famer Dean Chance dies

WOOSTER, Ohio -- Dean Chance, who won the 1964 Cy Young Award and pitched a no-hitter in 1967, died Sunday. He was 74.

The funeral home handling the arrangements near where he lived in Ohio confirmed Chance's death. There were no details on the cause.

Chance died two months after being at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, for his induction into the Angels hall of fame.

In 1964, Chance went 20-9 with a 1.65 ERA for the Angels and won the Cy Young; from 1956 to 1966, only one pitcher in the majors won the award each year.

He threw a no-hitter for Minnesota in August 1967. Earlier that month, he pitched a five-inning perfect game.

The two-time All-Star was well known for his exploits off the field, too. With teammate Bo Belinsky, Chance would pal around Hollywood with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe.

Chance went 128-115 with a 2.92 ERA in 10 seasons. He began with the expansion Los Angeles Angels in 1961 and also pitched for Minnesota, Cleveland, the Mets and Detroit.
