Today’s question: From the 1986-87 season until the 1991-92 season, only two men won the MVP award, each one three times. One was Michael Jordan, who was the other?
Yesterday’s question and answer: The 1927 Yankees had six pitchers win in double-figures in the season. How many of those won 20 or more games? The answer was one. Waite Hoyt was the lone pitcher to win 20 or more games. Hoyt went 22-7 in the season. To encore, he went 23-7 in 1928 to help the Yankees to another World Series appearance. The other pitchers to help the 1927 team were Wilcy Moore with his 19-7 record, Herb Pennock who went 19-8, Urban Shocker who was 18-6, Dutch Ruether who went 13-6, and George Pipgras who was 10-3. The Yankees’ season record was 110-44.
