Virdon died at the Lester E. Cox Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri in line with Virdon’s spouse Shirley. No reason behind demise was given.

“Hate to hear about the passing of Bill “Quail” Virdon,” former Pirates star Andrew McCutchen posted on Twitter. “He hit me ground balls as long as his body would let him. Time would pass and Id (sic) catch him sitting on bucket. Id (sic) tease him and tell him to get up. His response, ‘Old age can kiss my (butt).”

Virdon was born on June 9, 1931, in Hazel Park, Michigan. He is survived by spouse Shirley, three daughters, seven grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
