% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Paul Splittorff broke with Kansas City in 1970.    He was part of the Royals’ youth movement that included Steve Busby and others, i.e.  the group of homegrown stars that would make up the divisional winners of the late 1970s.

By 1973, Paul was a 20-game winner.    He became one of the best lefties in the AL in the late 1970′s.

Overall, he won 166 games with a 3.81 ERA.   He was “an innings eater” and generally pitched late in the game.   

Paul pitched well in the post season, too:  2-0 and 2.79 ERA.   He was the starting and winning pitcher in game 3 of the 1980 ALCS, or the year that KC swept New York.

Paul died in 2011.   He still leads KC in career wins.
