Willie Davis Found Dead

Willie Davis, a speedy center fielder who collected two World Series rings, three Gold Gloves and was a two-time All-Star during his 14 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has died. He was 69.

Davis was found dead Tuesday in his Burbank home, police said, adding that they did not believe foul play was involved.

The news spread quickly through the Dodgers' spring-training complex, where the team was playing a Cactus League game with the Colorado Rockies at the time. Maury Wills, another special instructor who was Davis' Dodgers teammate, was about to walk from the team offices to the stadium next door when he heard.

"We had respect for one another, definitely,'' said Wills. "But during our playing days, so many people threw it in Willie's face that maybe he should have been using his speed the way I used mine, so that caused a little bit of friction between us. But only a little bit."

He retired after the 1979 season with a career .279 average and 398 stolen bases.
