Herbert SCORE

Lakewood Park Cemetery
Cuyahoga County,

Pitcher Herb Score broke into the major leagues in a big way. In his first two years he led the league in strikeouts, was an All-Star, and was in the top 10 in ERA, wins, win/loss percent, innings, games started, complete games, and ratios such as strikeouts and hits per 9 innings and strikeout to walk ratio. His major league rookie strikeout record will last for twenty-nine years. On March 18, 1957, the Indians rejected a million-dollar offer for him from the Red Sox. Then on May 7, 1957, a line drive by Gil McDouglad struck him in the eye, and Score altered his pitching motion. He was never quite the same pitcher after that. He was later the play-by-play announcer for the Cleveland Indians for many years, calling the play that clinched the Indians returning to the postseason in 1995 after a forty-one year drought.
