Denton True "Cy" Young (March 29, 1867 – November 4, 1955) was one of the best-known pitchers in baseball history. The "Cy Young award" is named after him, and is the prize for the best pitcher at the end of each baseball season.
- "A pitcher's got to be good and he's got to be lucky to get a no hit game."
- Simple: A pitcher needs to be both good and lucky to pitch a game where his opponent does not get any hits.
- "Gosh, all a kid has to do these days is spit straight and he gets forty-thousand dollars to sign."
