Cy Young - American League Pitching Superstar - 1908
Denton True "Cy" Young (March 29, 1867 - November 4, 1955) was an American Major League Baseball pitcher. In this photograph, he is 41 years old and has 3 years left in his hall of fame baseball career.
During his 22-year baseball career (1890 - 1911), he pitched for five different teams. Young established numerous pitching records, some of which have stood for a century. Young compiled 511 wins, which is most in Major League history and 94 ahead of Walter Johnson who is second on the list.
Young was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937. One year after Young's death, the Cy Young Award was created to honor the previous season's best pitcher.
