Happy birthday Steve Busby who was born in Burbank, CA, on this day in 1949.
Some of us are old enough to remember Steve Busby the pitcher not just the man who called Rangers' games on TV and radio.
Steve played at USC. He broke with the Royals in 1972 pitching a complete game against Minnesota.
In the early 1970's, or before injuries cut short his career, Busby seemed like a man headed for the Hall of Fame: 54 wins over first three full seasons along with 45 complete games and 2 no-hitters before he was 24!
In fact, Sporting News had him on the cover: "Unlimited future"!
After baseball, Steve became an excellent radio and TV play by play analyst.
