On May 16, 1983, Darryl Strawberry hit the first of his 335 career home runs off of this man, Lee Tunnell, in the Mets’ 11-4 win over the Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium.
Just take a moment to let that sink in.
Andy Hawkins, wistfully remembering that time next year when he pitched a no-hitter against the White Sox.
Not to be confused with Andy Benes.
In honor of the Winter Classic, a Philadelphia staple on par with cheese steaks and the Eagles’ ability to underwhelm every year.
I’ve decided this week is Southpaw Week and today I’m going with another classic lefty in Mark Langston.
He’s probably best remembered for his phantom strikeout of Tino Martinez in the 1998 World Series or for being dealt for bird-exploder Randy Johnson.
But, he was also a four-time All-Star and a damn good pitcher in own right.
