Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"We didn't play well (on Opening Day ), but it was magnified by (Teddy) Higuera's pitching. He's one of the best left-handers in the league, and he showed you why." - Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Fred Lynn in The Washington Post (04/05/1988)

Teddy Higuera (20 wins, 11 losses, 1986 ) was the third Milwaukee Brewers pitcher to win 20-or-more games during a single, joining Jim Colborn (20 wins, 12 losses, 1973 ) and Mike Caldwell (22 wins, 9 losses, 1978 ). From that set of aces, only Higuera mowed down 200+ batters on his way to 20-wins.

Teddy Higuera was the twenty-fifth pitcher born in Mexico to make it to the Major League level, hardly a pioneer, but he was the first Mexican -born pitcher from an American League team to post a 20-win season (Note: he missed being the first ever by only three days). Do you know who his National League counterpart was? [ Answer ]

Did you know that Teddy Higuera was the first Brew Crew twirler to strikeout more than two-hundred batters in the same season, finishing the 1986 -season with a team record 207 strikeouts, crushing the previous record set by Marty Pattin , who had 169 strikeouts in 1971 ? A year later, Teddy crushed his own record, mowing down 240 batters in 1987 , a team record that stood until Ben Sheets , a righty, struck down 264 batters in 2004 . No lefty Brewer , through today, has eclipsed Teddy.
