It Was 35 Years Ago - Wow I'm Old

Fernando-mania began on this day in 1981.  It was a really great thing for baseball, especially with the strike that stopped baseball for a while during the 1981 season.  He won his first eight decisions on his way to the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards.  No one had ever won those two awards together before.

The Dodgers won the World Series as well that year so Fernando was always in the news.

That is it for now.  I ended up driving to St. Louis and back today so I'm exhausted.
