Billy Pierce, pitcher on Giants’ 1962 World Series team, dies. CHICAGO — Billy Pierce, a seven-time All-Star pitcher who was a key member of the Giants’ 1962 pennant-winning team and spent most of his 18 years in the majors with the Chicago White Sox, died Friday at 88. Mr. Pierce died in the Chicago suburb of Palos Heights, Ill. after a battle with gall bladder cancer, his family said.
“Billy was a true gentleman and an outstanding player who made a lasting impression during his time with the Giants, including his contributions as a member of the 1962 World Series team,” the Giants said in a statement. Known as “Billy the Kid” Pierce, he played for Chicago from 1949 to 1961, starting three All-Star Games in the mid-1950s. He started his career with his hometown Detroit Tigers (1945 and ’48) and finished with the Giants (1962-64), going 211-169 with a 3. 27 ERA, 1,999 strikeouts, 193 complete games and 38 shutouts.
He reached the Series with Chicago in 1959 and pitched a three-hit victory for the Giants in Game 6 in 1962 against the Yankees. Mr. Pierce, whose No. 19 was retired by the White Sox in 1987, was on the Hall of Fame Golden Era Committee ballot last year but failed to get in. He still tops the team’s career strikeouts list (1,796) and is fourth in wins (186). In his first season with the Giants at age 35, he went 16-6 — including a 12-0 record at Candlestick Park — with a 3.
49 ERA. In the three-game playoff series with Los Angeles for the NL pennant, Mr. Pierce pitched a three-hit shutout to beat Sandy Koufax 8-0 in Game 1, and got the pennant-clinching save at Dodger Stadium in a 6-4 win in Game 3 after the Giants scored four times in the ninth. In Game 3 of the World Series against the Yankees, Mr. Pierce was in a scoreless pitchers’ duel with Bill Stafford when the host Yankees broke through in the seventh to win 3-2 to take 2-1 lead in the Series.
