aaron killebrew pitchers cy youngs felonies
Trivia I have had the good fortune to be with Mark Harris, a former minor leaguer who threw batting practice for the Twins in the sixties. He once threw Home Run Derby to Aaron and Killebrew and has their autographs! He proposed a question to me that I flunked on, but it was too fun not to pass on.
Name five pitchers who had a Cy Young and were convicted of a felony.

McLain, Jenkins, Gooden, Blue and Hoyt. ( I had to look up the last two.)

Oh I got one right! Lol

Denny McLain yeah, if I had thought about it more, and I guess Curt Schilling never won the Cy Young—finished second in voting three times—and maybe hasn’t been charged with a felony yet either. But one can hope.

Good guesses - don't read the answers if you want to keep guessing.

 

When Mr Harris gave me this question - he stumped me.I missed by one.By the way he introduced Bert Blyleven to his wife.

Why would he introduce Bert to his wife? Shouldn't he have already known who she was? :)
