We say happy # 79 to the one and only Gaylord Perry.  I saw him pitch in 1972 when the Indians played the Orioles in Baltimore.   I don’t remember the final score but he pitched well.

Perry broke with the Giants in 1962 and had some great seasons with San Francisco (134 wins).   Then he was traded to Cleveland to Texas to San Diego to New York Yankees,  Atlanta, Kansas City and Seattle.    

Overall, he won 314, completed 303 games with a very good 3.11 ERA.     He was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1991.
