Welch, a pitcher in the Dodgers organization for the first 11 years of his career, died Monday at the age of 57 of an apparent heart attack, according to the club.

Tony La Russa led a contingent of Arizona representatives at the funeral of Welch, who was the D-backs' pitching coach when they won the World Series in 2001.
