We say happy # 76 to a great pitcher Mickey Lolich.    

He broke with the Detroit Tigers in 1963.  My guess is that most Tigers’ fans remember him for winning 3 games, including game 7, of the 1968 World Series.     Overall, he won 217 with a 3.44 ERA & 195 complete games.   His best year had to be 1971:   25 wins, 29 complete games, 376 innings pitched and a 2.92 ERA.  

He was the kind of pitcher that you wanted on your side: tough and very tough!
