Frank Pastore

On this date in 2012, Frank Pastore passed away at age 55.

"Frank Pastore, who was a professional pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, ate the complete steak dinner in 9 and 1/2 minutes (May 3, 1987). Pastore actually has eaten the steak dinner seven times. On his first effort, in February 1976, he finished the steak in 21 minutes. He held that record for 21 years." - website of the "World Famous" Big Texas Ranch in Amarillo, Texas regarding their 72 ounce steak challenge

"I've always been so proud of the record. In many ways, I'm more proud for The Steak than I am for my 8-year mediocre pitching career and my radio show in Los Angeles." - Frank Pastore

I've been to the Big Texan Ranch a few times, and I can't believe anyone could eat that steak in a week, much less in a half-hour.

I didn't really check the cause of death here but I could guess.
