Denton True Young (March 29, 1867 – November 4, 1955) was an American baseball pitcher during the 1890s and 1900s. The Baseball Hall of Fame inducted Young in 1937 and he won one championship in 1903 as a member of the Boston Americans. An accomplished athlete,
Young won the 1901 AL Triple Crown for Pitchers. The annual award given for the pitcher of the year in each league is named the Cy Young Award. Young played twenty-two years of professional baseball. He set the records for most wins all-time, most innings pitched all-time, most games started all-time, and most complete games all-time. His longevity also allowed him to set the record for the most career losses, despite winning 62% of his decisions.
Young began his major league career in 1890 with the Cleveland Spiders. He allowed three hits in his debut. In 1893, the pitching mound was placed 60 feet 6 inches from home plate. He was one of the few pitchers whose statistical performance did not suffer as a consequence of the move.
