Pitcher Dave Boswell, who won 20 games for the Minnesota Twins in 1969 despite missing a couple of weeks after a fight with manager Billy Martin, has died at age 67 of a heart attack at his home in Joppa, Maryland.

Following a 1969 game in Detroit,  Boswell got into a fight with teammate Bob Allison and Manager Billy Martin outside the Lindell AC bar close to Tiger Stadium. After knocking out Allison with one punch, Martin knocked out Boswell giving him a cut that required 20 stitches. Despite the off-field injury, Boswell would still go on to win 20 games in 1969, helping the Twins win the American League West Division.

Boswell had a record of 68-56 for Minnesota, Detroit and Baltimore from 1964-1971.

The Baltimore, Maryland native pitched in 205 games, 151 of them as a starting pitcher. He pitched 37 complete games, including six shutouts, and finished with a 3.52 ERA.

During the American League Championship Series,  Boswell would lose 1-0 in 11 innings to the Baltimore Orioles and  pitcher Dave McNally. He later revealed that he had suffered a career-ending arm injury during the game on a slider thrown to strike out slugger Frank Robinson in the bottom of the 10th inning.

Ohio State sprinter/hurdler Letecia Wright was named track athlete of the week by the Big Ten Conference. This is the seventh athlete of the week honor for the All-American in her career and third this season.

Wright, a native of Baltimore, Maryland, won the award after a stellar, record-breaking performance at the 102nd Drake Relays. Wright had the best performance for the Scarlet and Gray in the 100m hurdles. The defending champion in the event used a personal-best time of 12.87 to not only win the hurdles, but break the 10-year-old Drake Relays record in the process.

The eye-popping time is also the number 4 time in Division I this season, first in the Big Ten and third best in school history.

Wright, a  senior, also teammed up with Christina Manning, Chesna Sykes and Madison McNary for the 4x100m relay. Together, that foursome broke another Drake record and an Ohio State record to finish second overall in 43.93.
