Did You Know…

Don Sutton struck out the most batters(3,574) without ever leading the league and also tied with Nolan Ryan for most career wins(324) by a pitcher who never won a Cy Young Award.  Sutton also pitched 5,282.1 innings and allowed 472 home runs – the fourth highest total ever – but never hit a home run in his 1,354 at-bats as a hitter.

My take – One of the most consistent pitchers of his era, Sutton’s career tallies are on par with the greatest pitchers of his era!!
