McLain did things his way
Sept. 14, 1968 -- Denny McLain was the first pitcher to reach the magic number of 30 wins in a season in 34 years when the Detroit Tigers rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Oakland A's. The 24-year-old righthander also was the last to accomplish the feat in the 20th century.
Odds 'n' Ends
Sharyn divorced McLain after he went to prison for the second time, but they remarried in October 2003, six months after he was released.
