HERB SCOREGame 500 | July 11, 1996 | Herb Score, Tommy John, Bert Blyleven
With the Cleveland Indians in town to play the Minnesota Twins, broadcasters John and Blyleven invited their friend from their years with the Indians to join them at Dunkers. With the Minneapolis Club fully booked, this meeting was held at Interlachen Country Club. Score, a hard-throwing left bander, was one of the top power pitchers in baseball in the mid 50s. In 1957 he was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of New York's Gil McDougald. While he was able to come back, he was never again the pitcher he was before the injury. He served as a Cleveland broadcaster from 1964 to 1997.
