in 1977, reuschel won 20 games, made the all-star team, and finished third in the cy young voting. he threw a scoreless inning in the midsummer classic (unlike his start in the 1989 all-star game in which he allowed that massive lead-off home run to bo jackson, and then another long ball to the next batter, wade boggs).
voici à vous, 1977 rick reuschel!
