Alan Thomas Hrabosky (The Mad Hungarian or Hungo)



Born July 21, 1949 in Oakland, CA

Height 5' 11", Weight 185 lb.

Debut June 16, 1970

  • The Mad Hungarian. Stocky lefthander with an explosive fastball and super intense personality. Used to stomp around behind the mound to psyche himself up, then he would slam the ball into his glove and stalk back to the rubber. Batters who took exception to his theatrics were stared down, and then usually buzzed.

  • 8th in NL MVP balloting in 1975.

  • Third in NL Cy Young balloting in 1975. He led the league in saves with 22 and posted a brilliant 13-3 record with a microscopic ERA of 1.66.

  • Fifth in NL Cy Young balloting in 1974.

  • When he wasn't selected to the All-Star team in 1974, St. Louis fans rallied behind him, honoring him with a "We Hlove Hrabosky Hbanner Hday."
