Unfortunately,there is little video of Fidrych pitching with the Tigers. Those of you too young to remember, well during his rookie season, he captivated a nation. And he looked just like the guy from "The Greatest American Hero."
He was an original character and for that one year, a great pitcher. In this day and age, he would have signed a huge contract after than first year and made a killing in endorsements. Sadly, not of that occurred for The Bird, as he made little money from baseball.
RIP, Mark Fidrych, RIP.
