Real Enthusiasm



I vividly remember seeing Mark "The Bird" Fidrych pitch his televised complete game against the Yankees in 1976.  The night pushed him to 8-1.

Here are excerpts from a recently published bio of Fidrych by Doug Wilson.  It's a good read.

Fidrych was killed in an accident as he worked on his gravel truck in 2009.

He was indeed a rare Bird.
