Don Drysdale
Original name: Donald Scott Drysdale
Birth: Jul. 23, 1936

Death: Jul. 3, 1993
Montreal Region
Quebec, Canada

Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Cy Young award winning pitcher who played out his career with both the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers, inducted into Hall of Fame in 1984. Held the record for pitching 58.2 consecutive scoreless innings until bested by L.A. Dodger Orel Hershiser in 1988. An intimidating figure on the mound, he infamously holds the major league record for number of seasons leading the league in batters hit by a pitch. He was found dead in his Montreal hotel room after he failed to show up for a Dodgers vs. Expos broadcast which he was to be announcing alongside play-by-play man Vin Scully. (bio by: A.J. Marik)
