Cy Young started more than 800 games, pitched more than 7,000 innings, and lasted 23 seasons because he never had a sore arm. He was an anatomical marvel, starting at least 40 games eleven times. He finished with more wins, innings pitched, games started, and complete games than any other hurler. Ninety years later he still holds those records. The best pitcher in each league is honored with an award named for him. He threw the first pitch in modern World Series history.

On July 29, 1903, Cy Young pitched a complete game as Boston lost to the New York Highlanders, 15-14. Boston's Patsy Dougherty hit for the cycle, but Young got little defensive help as Boston made eight errors behind him. New York's Willie Keeler banged out four hits off Young to lead the Highlander offense. Game time: two hours, 10 minutes.
