Fernando Valenzuela


Mexican pitcher who received the 1981 Country wide League Cy Adolescent award like a first year, while helping lead the LA Dodgers to a global Series Tournament amidst the era recognized to Angelenos as “Fernandomania.” He increased to prominence within the Main Leagues quickly, while his age group was broadly disputed. He experienced a serious arm damage in 1988, and he could under no circumstances pitch exactly the same once again. He was among 12 children we were young in Sonora, Mexico. He was handled by Tommy Lasorda for the LA Dodgers.
