TMZ— Margaret Whitton — who played Indians owner Rachel Phelps in “Major League” — has died at age 67.

She died peacefully at her home in Florida after a brief battle with cancer, this according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Whitton was GREAT in the ‘Major League’ movies — playing an owner rooting against her team so she could relocate ’em from Cleveland to Miami.

Her most memorable scene … when she crashed the Indians locker room when Lou Brown was complaining about the “bitch” who runs the team … and responded, “You wanted to talk to the bitch?”


OK, yes, she was very good in those movies even though she rooted against her team but she also basically sexually assaulted a bunch of the players.

It was because she rooted against the team that they won to spite her so she was actually a great owner.

Except she didn’t care about the fans at all because she was going to abandon them and move the team to Miami, so maybe she was a terrible owner.

Either way Whitton was a great actress and will be missed.
