Some Amazing Pitching Seasons

Today I'm posting six more of my "A Closer Look" columns originally written for the Hall of Fame website. They cover fantastic feats by great pitchers, four of them Hall of Famers. I found these stories fascinating and hope you will, too. They are posted below and archived at "A Closer Look":
  1. John Hiller's incredible comeback from a heart attack
  2. Nolan Ryan's most heartbreaking season
  3. Gaylord Perry's extra-innings excellence
  4. Joe McGinnity's forgotten 35-8 season
  5. Jack Taylor's unbelievable complete-game streak
  6. Dizzy Dean: the last NL pitcher to win 30 games in a season

Enjoy these game-by-game accounts, and we'll resume our regularly scheduled programming next time around.
