One of my favorite pitchers from my childhood was Frank Tanana. Many times I watched him beat the Brewers at County Stadium and I always followed his career – 21 years in the majors! In the mid to late 70s he was the number 2 pitcher behind Nolan Ryan and played in three All-Star Games (1976-1978) but he was just another durable pitcher with a tireless arm…rare these days.
