Today in Sports History: November 13

By Jonah Sharf

On November 13, 1995, Greg Maddux of the Atlanta Braves set a record by winning his fourth consecutive NL Cy Young Award. He was the first person to win four consecutive Cy Young awards, a feat which was later matched by Randy Johnson. While he hasn’t won the most Cy Young awards in history, he will likely always be able to claim that he’s tied for the longest streak of consecutive wins, and will always be considered one of the best pitchers of all time. 1995 was one of the Hall of Famer’s finest seasons, putting up a miniscule ERA of 1.63, with a 7.87 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings.
