This Day in Braves History- Cy Young

1911 T205 Gold Border- I don't actually own this card, it was found on Wikipedia

Although Cy Young never pitched for the Boston Braves, he did pitch his final season in Boston, playing for the Rustlers- who would become the Braves in 1912. Young was released by the Cleveland Naps on August 16, 1911, having only pitched in seven games for the Naps that year. Three days later, Young signed with Boston and finished his career with the Boston organization- going 4-5 with a 3.71 ERA. On September 22 the 44 year-old Young pitched a 1-0 shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates for win #511, the final 'W' for the major league's all-time win leader.
