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.

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