Mark "The Bird" Fidrych Dead

August 14th, 1954 - April 13th 2009

The man who once had 24 complete games in 31 starts has been found dead according to reports by ESPN radio.

In 1976 "The Bird" as a rookie, went 19-9 posting a 2.34 ERA. Heralded as the new dominant pitcher of the era, his stardom was fleeting. Fidrych played only 4 more years appearing in only 27 games.

Condolences to Mark's family.

I'm sure the eBay vultures will be out in full force.

Blows me away! One of my all time favorite players and he got trapped under a dump truck of all things!
