The great Don Drysdale was born on this in 1936.   He died unexpectedly in 1993 of an apparent heart attack.   He was 56.  

Along with Sandy Koufax, they were one of the best pitching duos in history.  They both threw hard and won games.  

Drysdale retired with 209 wins, a 2.95 ERA and 167 complete games.   He pitched in 5 World Series with the Dodgers:  3-3 with a 2.95 ERA.    

His greatest moment had to be in 1968 when threw 6 consecutive shutouts and 58 consecutive scoreless innings.    

Drysdale was voted into The Hall of Fame in 1984.   I saw him pitch only on TV but he was awesome.
