Stump The Hersh - August 2011

This never gets old... I have a great reader-submitted "Stump the Hersh" question.  This one comes from Charles H in Greenwood, SC and it is a good one.

As you know, Bert Blyleven was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this year.  During his induction speech, Bert made mention to the fact that he was one of only three pitchers in baseball history that won games prior to his 20th birthday and after his 40th birthday.  Name the other two pitchers that have accomplished this feat... honor system applies - good luck (I think you're going to need it). 

If you've got a great trivia question capable of Stumping the Hersh, email them to me at


  1. how about Phil Niekro and Joe Nuxhall

  2. I don't know the answer so I'll take a guess. Frank Tanana and Tommy John?

  3. Incorrect and incorrect... we've got ourselves a Hersh Stumper.

    I had to do a little digging on this one. Herb Pennock and Mike Morgan are the correct answers. Great job Charles... keep em coming.
