No wonder Cy was able to pitch so many games! No higher tribute than having the top pitcher award given annually named for you. I read somewhere that when Cy was invited to baseball banquets following his retirement, he always insisted that his win total was actually 512, not the 511 they gave him official credit for. Must have been a very competitive guy. I also read that he and Rube Waddell hooked up in about an 18-inning duel that Waddell won, I believe 2-1. So thereafter, Waddell, a true drinking man, would go from saloon to saloon trading the baseball he "used to beat Cy with" for another drink. Consequently, there were Rube Waddell baseballs at saloons all over A.L. cities, no telling how many.
