Relief Pitching Newsbeat

Thursday, February 02, 2017

Fadeaway: Episode 7: The Big Drabowski

This is a few months old, published around the World Series, but still a good listen. The latest from Primate Eric Enders’  baseball history podcast.

Born in Ozanna, Poland, at the start of the Third Reich, Moe Drabowsky escaped from Hitler and came to America as a toddler. He embraced life in America, becoming first the hardest-throwing young prospect in baseball, then its most notorious prankster. And in 1966, after arm injuries had caused everyone to write him off for good, he resurrected his career and authored the most spectacular relief pitching performance in World Series history.

Also features some comments from Gene Larkin about this moment.
