    He was the American League Most Valuable Player in 1968. He also won the American League Cy Young Award in 1968. And he accomplished something that no other living baseball player ever did.

    He is a former Tiger, Senator, Athletic, and Brave, but Denny McLain made history as a Detroit Tiger when he won 31 games in 1968. The previous 30 game winner was Dizzy Dean in 1934 and no one has accomplished this feat since. Ironically, Dizzy was the announcer on NBC’s Game of the Week on Sept 14, 1968 when McLain got his 30th win.

    No only has no one accomplished this feat since 1968, but most baseball observers say it will not happen again, with the 5 man pitching rotations, pitch counts, and the increasing role of the reliever. McLain had a 10 year career who authored or co-authored three baseball books, and appeared on the cover of Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated four times, as well as countless other sports publications. Denny also played for two World Championship teams.

    Denny McLain is coming to Fort Wayne Indiana on Saturday March 16th and Findlay Ohio on Sunday March 17th to meet local fans, talk some baseball, and sign autographs. The event Saturday will be held at the HOTEL FORT WAYNE, located at 305 e Washington Center rd which is at exit 312a off of I-69, and Sunday at the COUNTRY INN & SUITES located at 903 interstate dr , exit 159 off of I-75 in Findlay Oh. He will be signing autographs from 10 to 3 in both locations. His appearance will be held in conjunction with the monthly sports card & collectibles shows.

    Mr Mclain is a colorful person that loves to talk sports with his fans, and loves interviews with the press, if you would like to arrange an opportunity to interview him before his appearance that can be arranged by calling the show promoter who then will put him in contact with you . Also, if you would like to interview him in person at the show, this can be arranged also.
