HILLER DIES AT 70

Chuck Hiller, who hit the National League's first grand slam in the World Series, has died. He was 70.

Hiller worked in the New York Mets organization for the past 24 seasons as a major league coach and a minor league manager and adviser.

The former second baseman died Wednesday in St. Pete Beach, Fla., after a lengthy illness. Hiller's grand slam in Game Four of the 1962 World Series off New York Yankees pitcher Marshall Bridges snapped a seventh-inning tie and helped the San Francisco Giants to a 7-3 victory.
