Jim Corsi death: When did Jim Corsi pass away?

Per Steve Burton of WBZ TV (CBS) in Boston, Corsi “passed away from cancer peacefully overnight with his family by his side.”

Two days prior, Corsi publicly revealed that he’d been diagnosed with stage IV cancer of the liver and colon.

Corsi spent 10 seasons in the majors, including three stints with the Oakland A’s. He played half his career with Oakland, and did some of his best work here.

The right-handed reliever made his MLB debut in 1988 wearing green-and-gold.

He pitched well for the A’s for two seasons, winning a championship ring in 1989, though he didn’t appear in the playoffs either year.

He headed to the Astros after that, but returned to Oakland in 1992.

He was then selected by the brand-new Marlins in their expansion draft, but came back to the A’s yet again in 1995 for two more strong years.
