Cy Young Award Winners in the Hall of Fame

I became a baseball fan at 9 years of age in the Year of the Pitcher, 1968. My family was living in Missouri and I became a Cardinals fan for life. Led by the stellar pitching of Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, and Nelson Briles, the Redbirds went 97-65 that year and represented the National League in one of the best World Series ever vs. the Detroit Tigers. Gibson won both the Cy Young Award and the National League MVP Award that year and became my favorite player. To this day, I always prefer a pitchers duel to a slug fest when attending a ballgame.
