现代球迷知道他的名字,因为Cy Young奖每年颁发给两个主要联赛中最好的投手。但今天的球迷可能并不完全明白,扬的赢得大多数比赛的记录,已经持续了一个多世纪。这是一个很可能永远不会被打破的记录,因为没有现代投手接近赢得400场比赛。 Young的职业生涯开始于1890年的克利夫兰蜘蛛。他很快给人留下了印象,1893年在纽约时报提到他称他是“克利夫兰的原始裂缝投手”。投掷非常快速和非常努力,年轻人在整个19世纪90年代统治了击球手。当克利夫兰球队的老板在圣路易斯购买球队并将球员转移到他的新球队时,杨加入了圣路易斯精英队。 1901年,美国联盟的到来引发了对人才的竞购战,杨被美国波士顿人引诱。在为波士顿投球的过程中,杨在1903年对阵匹兹堡海盗的系列赛中投入了世界大赛历史上的第一球。 Young在1911赛季退役,并于1937年入选棒球名人堂。他于1955年11月4日去世,享年88岁。两天后,纽约时报发表了对他职业生涯的评价,描述了他喜欢讲述的事情。古老的棒球故事:“有一个非凡的场合,当一个不知道Cy的身份的一个蠢蠢的年轻记者中断时,Cy正在好好地散步。”“对不起,Young先生,”他说。 “你是一个大联盟投手吗?” “’年轻的出纳员’,

When the owner of the Cleveland franchise bought a franchise in St. Louis and transferred players to his new team, Young joined the St. Louis Perfectos. In 1901 the arrival of the American League created a bidding war for talent, and Young was lured to the Boston Americans. While pitching for Boston, Young threw the very first pitch in World Series history, in the 1903 series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Young retired after the 1911 season and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937. He died at the age of 88 on November 4, 1955.
