Let's go and give the eventual 1972 American League Cy Young winner an "In Action" card, Cleveland Indians pitcher Gaylord Perry:
Great shot of him pitching during his award-winning campaign.
During that season, his first in Cleveland, Perry was a monster!
All he did was win 24 games, post an earned run average of 1.92, complete 29 games en route to a staggering 342.2 innings of work, throw five shutouts and strike out 234 batters.
What a workhorse!
What is incredible is that Perry would have 40 decisions that season (24-16) in his 41 games, one of them in relief where he posted a save.
So the man came away with a decision in every single start he had that year! Awesome!
Future 300-game winner, future all-time strikeout king (for a little while anyway), and future Hall of Famer after being voted in in 1991.
Just an awesome pitcher during an awesome baseball era…
