Sutton’s death was confirmed to be the consequence of complicated cancer trauma that the former baseball pitcher has gone through. On his Twitter, Darron Sutton, wrote an announcement confirming the death of his late father.

Saddened to share that my dad passed away in his sleep last night. He worked as hard as anyone I’ve ever known and he treated those he encountered with great respect…and he took me to work a lot. For all these things, I am very grateful. Rest In Peace.

Darron wrote on Twitter.

His career began and ended in the shirt of Los Angeles Dodgers. Sutton played a total of 16 years for Dodgers in 23 year-long career of him. His career for Dodgers has lasted from 1966 to 1980 and including a final tour in 1988.

The former pitcher was four times All-Star of MLB, marked 324-256 and a 3.26 ERA. Dodgers’ President proposed his pity over the death of Sutton in a statement.

Today we lost a great ballplayer, a great broadcaster and, most importantly, a great person. Don left an indelible mark on the Dodger franchise during his 16 seasons in Los Angeles and many of his records continue to stand to this day. I was privileged to have worked with Don in both Atlanta and Washington, and will always cherish our time spent together. 

Dodgers’ President wrote.

In his 23-year-long career, Sutton also played for Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, and Oakland Athletics.

He was then honored to the Hall of Fame of MLB in 1998.

In the end, we all apologize for this lost of MLB and Sutton’s family. Rest in peace, legend!
