TCMA BASEBALL CARD
Herb Score was hailed by the media as the left-handed Bob Feller and might have become one of the best pitchers in baseball history had not the 6 ft 2 inches, 185 pound mound star's career been ruined by a line drive to his eye off the bat of Yankees Gil McDougald.
In his first two seasons Herb Score posted a resounding 36 wins, including a 16-10 record and chosen 1955 Rookie of the Year. In his sophomore year he won 20 games. Prior to his injury the Boston Red Sox offered Cleveland $1 million dollars (a huge sum then) for the fastball youngster. After his eye injury he was never the same pitcher. Upon leaving the majors he became one of the Indians TV and radio announcers.
