According to baseball-reference.com, Fernando pitched in front of more fans than any other pitcher in baseball from 1980 to 1990. That’s true even though Fernando missed six weeks to injury in 1988 and only made two starts in 1980.

Starting Pitchers who Performed in Front of the Most Fans, 1980-1990

1. Fernando Valenzuela … 12,945,716
2. Nolan Ryan … 10,867,110
