Happy Reds birthday, Danny Jackson!


January 5, 1962

Danny Jackson is one of five Reds pitchers to finish second in Cy Young Award voting; he matched Orel Hershiser win-for-win and loss-for-loss in 1988, but Hershiser rode the wave of breaking Don Drysdale‘s scoreless inning streak to the best pitcher trophy.

Jackson departed Cincinnati after the team won the 1990 World Championship. In three seasons, he was 35-25 with a 3.61 ERA. He started his career with the Royals, and after leaving the Reds he pitched for the Cubs, Pirates, Phillies, Cardinals, and Padres.
