The death of former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Mike Flanagan has been ruled a suicide. The body of the 59-year-old Cy Young award winner was found Wednesday about 250 feet behind his house just north of Baltimore.

On Thursday police said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Police say he was upset about financial matters. He did not leave a note.
