HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The Houston Astros say former slugger Jimmy Wynn died at age 78.
Wynn was nicknamed "The Toy Cannon,quot; because of the power it produced despite its small size. He was a three-time All-Star outfielder in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Astros announced that he died Thursday, but did not provide further details.
