Happy # 62 to David Clyde

David Clyde was born on Friday, April 22, 1955, in Kansas City, Kansas.    

In 1973, 18-year old Clyde made his major league debut with the Texas Rangers.   

To say the least, Clyde, who had pitched in a high school game a few weeks before, was rushed to sell seats.   Sadly, he was out of baseball in 5 years:  18-33 with a 4.67 ERA.

Wonder how different it would have been if Clyde had gone through the minors and brought to the Rangers later?   We will never know but my guess is that a hard throwing lefty like Clyde would have succeeded, as a starter or closer.

Sad story.
