Description
Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989
Don Drysdale, at Van Nuys High. He signed with the Dodgers out of high school, after a meeting at Otto's Pink Pig restaurant in Sherman Oaks. "Big D" started with Brooklyn in 1956, but his best years were spent in L.A. Known for his brush-back pitches and competitive fire, Drysdale broke Walter Johnson's record by pitching 58-2/3 consecutive scoreless innings in 1968. A year later, he was forced to retire with a torn rotator cuff; he became part of the Dodgers' broadcast team. He died in 1993.
