Mitchell Page, former major league player and coach, dies at 59

Mitchell Page, a former major league outfielder and coach whose best season was his rookie year with the Oakland A's, has died. He was 59.

Page died Saturday, said a spokesman for the St. Louis Cardinals. He had been a coach with the Cardinals, among other teams. The cause of death was not known.

In 1977 with Oakland, Page hit .307 with 21 homers and 75 runs batted in. He also stole 42 bases and finished second to Baltimore's Eddie Murray for the American League rookie of the year.

Page played with Oakland through the 1983 season and ended his career with Pittsburgh in 1984. Along with the Cardinals, he coached in Kansas City and Washington.

Page was born Oct. 15, 1951, in Los Angeles.
