Former Snider standout, ex-Brewers pitcher dies at 58

Andy Replogle, a former Snider High School standout and major-league pitcher, has died in Florida.

According to his obituary in the April 10 editions of the Estero, Fla., newspaper, Replogle was employed at the Estero Country Club at the Vines. He was 58.

Born in South Bend, Replogle first starred at South Bend Clay, where he pitched his team to a state title in 1971. He transferred to Snider the next year, and went on to star at Kansas State and later played two seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers.

In 1978, he went 9-5 for the Brewers with 41 strikeouts and a 3.92 ERA in 149.1 innings. The next year, he pitched just eight innings, and finished his career with a 9-5 record, a 4.00 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 157.1 innings.
