  • Mike McCormick is this year's chosen honoree

    http://cyyoungdaysfestival.com/Home_Page.html

    Held in Young's hometown of Newcomerstown, Ohio, they have a different Cy Young award winner every year. Last year it was Denny McLain, and the year before, Bob Turley. Gaylord Perry has appeared here in years past, and 1964 AL Cy Young Award winner Dean Chance usually makes the drive from nearby Wooster, his current residence. Autographs are free.

    To follow up, Chance did not make the trip down, so it was just McCormick. He is, to say the least, in much better shape than last year's Grand Marshall, Denny McLain. Really nice guy, casually joking with everyone. His best pitch, he said, was "the one that got the batter out." He said he was really lucky the year he won the CYA, 1967. He just happened to have the right stuff on his pitches to make the outs when he needed to.

      McCormick was the San Francisco Giants only Cy young Award winner until Tim Linceum won it in 2008.
