Major League Baseball's last 30-game winner, Denny McLain, is scheduled to appear in Elkhart.
McLain, who won 31 games and the American League Cy Young Award for the 1968 Detroit Tigers, is slated to appear at Concord Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17, as part of a sports cards and collectibles show scheduled for 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. in center court.
Fans will have the opportunity to talk baseball with the man who went 131-91 in 10 big league seasons. He will also sign autographs for a fee.
McLain, 70, is a Chicago native. He made his MLB debut for Detroit in 1963 at age 19 and also pitched for the Washington Senators, Oakland Athletics and Atlanta Braves.
The right-hander played his career in the pre-free agent era. In his historic 1968 season, his salary was $33,000.
McLain is the author or co-author of three baseball books and has graced the cover of many magazines, including Time and Sports Illustrated.
Bariatric surgery helped McLain lose 162 pounds.
