Today’s question: All St. Louis Cardinals fans know about the 1968 World Series when the Detroit Tigers defeated their favorite team to win the title, That year Tigers ace Denny McLain won 31 games. Who was the last major league pitcher before him to win 30?

Yesterday’s answer: When Michael Jordan made the varsity of his high school team as a senior after being cut as a junior he had no real great reason to pick 23 at that time. His older brother was on the team and wore No. 45, so 23 was about half of that number. He averaged a triple-double (29.2 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 10.1 assists) his senior year.
