    Francisco Barrios

    Big-city life was too much for Barrios, an excitable, gregarious Mexican. Possessing a 90-mph fastball, Barrios joined Chicago in 1976 and combined with Blue Moon Odom to no-hit Oakland on July 28. They walked 11, but prevailed 2-1. Barrios had a flush of success in 1977 with a 14-7 mark. But, bad tempered, he engaged umpires in verbal tirades, and once slugged it out with teammate Steve Trout in a Cleveland hotel. In 1981 he was arrested on a narcotics charge, and a year later he died of a drug overdose. (RL)
