Good Bye Mark.

The most unique Pitcher for the Detroit Tigers died this week in an accident on his farm. I remember very well the pitching style of Mark Fidrich, also known as “The Bird” for some of his unusual actions at the mound. We watched him just because he was real. Back then a Tiger game was worth watching if Mark was pitching. I enjoyed many games watching his style and hearing that song “The bird bird bird is the word, have you heard about the bird”. He was a good guy, a good pitcher and we give our deapest sympathy to his wife and family.
