We remember Mark Fidrych (1954-2009)


Mark Steven Fidrych was born in 1954.   He died on this day in a farm accident in 2009.
In 1976,  Fidrych became the most popular player in baseball.    He had a great season and even started the All Star game:   19-9, 24 complete games and a 2.34 ERA.    He went 10-6 for the next 4 seasons and battled one injury after another.    By 1981, he was out of the game!
He was baseball’s “one hit wonder” but touched the thousands of fans who turned out to see him in Detroit and every other park in the AL.
