Cy Young, RHP


Career: 1890-1911, Spiders, Americans
Fun fact: 94 wins more than anyone else

No pitcher was more renowned for taking the ball than Denton True Young. The man called "Cy" logged a record 7,356 innings over 22 seasons with the Cleveland Spiders, Boston Americans and three other teams.

Oh yeah, Young also won 511 games in the majors. A century after his final pitch, that number is equal parts unapproachable and unthinkable. --Jerry Crasnick
