September 22, 1911: 511 Wins For Cy Young

     On September 22, 1911, the fans cheered "Old" Cy Young in Pittsburgh as they watched him lead his Boston Rustlers to a 1-0 victory over their hometown Pirates. The victory would be the 511th victory of Young's storied career and his last. He was 44 years of age when he locked down the historic win. No pitcher will ever come close to the mark. Along with the 511 wins, Young holds records for most complete games with 749, innings pitched with 7,356, career starts with 815, and most consecutive innings pitched without a hit with 25 and a third innings pitched of perfection during the 1904 campaign. Young also was a World Series champion, winning it as a member of the Boston Americans during the first ever World Series in 1903. He also had the distinction of being the first man to ever throw a pitch in the World Series. His accomplishments on the diamond have been forever immortalized with the award that bears his name, which goes to the best pitcher in both leagues each and every season. The award came to be one year after the legendary hurler of yesteryear passed away in 1955. He was also immortalized in The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York in 1937. Surprisingly the man who won 511 games was a second ballot Hall of Famer.

Side notes: The Boston Rustlers are now the modern day Braves and the Boston Americans are now the modern day Red Sox.
