Mathews died in his sleep at Scripps La Jolla hospital, his wife, Judy, said. He had been hospitalized since Sept. 3, when she took him to the emergency room after he had trouble breathing. "He worked so hard to get better," Judy Mathews said. "He just gave out." Mathews died of complications of pneumonia, said his son, Eddie Jr., an anesthesiologist at Waukesha (Wis.) Memorial Hospital. Mathews also had congestive heart failure, although that didn't play a significant role his death, his son said.

I'm just a small part of a wonderful game that is a tremendous part of America today." - Eddie Mathews B aseball Almanac is pleased to present an unprecedented collection of baseball related quotations spoken by Eddie Mathews and about Eddie Mathews. Eddie Mathews Quotations From Eddie Mathews "I don't know where Hank Aaron will break Ruth's record but I can tell you one thing - ten years from the day he hits it three million people will say they were there." "I'm just a beat up old third baseman. I'm just a small part of a wonderful game that is a tremendous part of America today." "It's only a hitch when you're in a slump. When you're hitting the ball its called rhythm." "My mother used to pitch to me and my father would shag balls. If I hit one up the middle close to my mother, I'd have some extra chores to do. My mother was instrumental in making me a pull hitter." "When you're a kid, what fun the game is! You grab a bat and glove and ball, that's it. I know what Ted Williams and Stan Musial meant when they said it got tougher to get in shape every year."
