Jim Bibby, 1944 - 2010.

Former Rangers pitcher Jim Bibby passed away Tuesday evening from undisclosed causes. He was 65 years old.

Jim had a solid 12 year Major League career. He appeared in the 1980 All-Star game and was part of the 1979 World Champion Pittsburg Pirates. In addition to the Bucs he also pitched for the Indians, Cardinals, and Rangers.

In 1973 Jim etched his name permanently in the annals of the Texas Rangers as he hurled the first no-hitter in Rangers history.

Many condolences to the Bibby family on their loss.
