We remember Mike Flanagan

The late Mike Flanagan was born in New Hampshire on this 1951.   

Mike broke with the Orioles in 1975 and turned into one of the best lefthanders in the American League.     I remember watching Mike pitch game 1 of the 1979 World Series, a complete game 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh.

His best year was 1979:   23-9, 3.08 ERA, Cy Young Award and a trip to the World Series.

Overall, he won 167 games with a 3.90 ERA.   He also pitched with Toronto in 1987-89.

Mike Flanagan died of an apparent suicide in 2011.   

Very sad ending to a pretty good baseball life.
