Fidrych Took Over Baseball in 1976

On this day in 1976 Mark Fidrych made his sixth career start.  He also recorded his sixth complete game.  He was 5-1 in those six games, losing the one game even when only giving up two runs.

For the year he had 29 starts and 24 complete games.  He was 19-9 as he won Rookie of the Year.  He lost the Cy Young Award to Jim Palmer.

Fernando Valenzuela had a start to his career that was just like that of Fidrych.
