@allmustfall16 said in Mark the Bird Fidrych - get the rights for him:
Can we get this guy in the game? His breakout was 1976. Also was a great dude outside of baseball. I’d like to think he would have got a kick out of seeing himself in this game. For you youngsters that don’t know anything about him, watch this link
This was a top five game of all time at Tiger Stadium.
It’s a shame what happened to him. Not only a tragic end to such a promising career, but he passed away in such a tragic way too.
He’s a guy I always think of when people pose the “what if so-and-so had stayed healthy” question. His career ended because of a concern that today is much easier to diagnose and remedy.
MLB network aired a documentary about his life a few years ago. It’s called The Bird, if anyone out there wants to learn more about the man and his career.
