Donald Scott “Don” Drysdale (23 July 23 1936 – 3 July 1993) was a Major League Baseball player and Hall of Fame right-handed pitcher with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was one of the dominant starting pitchers of the 1960s, and became a radio and television broadcaster following his playing career. Drysdale won the 1962 Cy Young Award and in 1968 pitched a record six consecutive shutouts and 58+2⁄3 consecutive scoreless innings. One of the most dominant pitchers of the late 1950s to mid 1960s, Drysdale stood 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m) tall and was not afraid to throw pitches near batters to keep them off balance. After his playing career, he became a radio/television broadcaster.
