Denny McClain

Talking Old School Game with an Old School Pitcher

by Eric Mollo
I’m just a generation too young, but I grew up to witness the transition. Long time baseball fans have seen how the game has changed. From day games to night games, higher payrolls, and introducing the pitch count, the game has evolved. But it was the pitch count, a strategy now used by nearly every team which limits how long starting pitchers last over the course of a game, was one topic of conversation I had with Major League Baseball’s last thirty game winner, Denny McClain.
