Former major league pitcher Sid Hudson died this morning. He was 93.

Hudson lived in Waco since 1955 after pitching his final season with the Boston Red Sox in 1954. Hudson compiled a career record of 104-152 in 12 major league seasons, including a 17-16 record as a rookie with the Washington Senators in 1940. He pitched in major league All-Star games in 1941-42 before enlisting in the military during World War II.

Hudson went on to coach and scout with the Senators and Texas Rangers before starting a seven-year stint as Baylor’s pitching coach in 1987.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
