March 21, 1977 > Mark "The Bird" Fidrych tears cartilage in his left knee and is forced to undergo surgery. The 1976 AL Rookie of the Year, Fidrych had become a national sensation thanks to his colorful quotes and wild antics on the mound. Unfortunately, the injuries will mount and prematurely end the career of one of baseball's most unique characters.
