"<strong Larry  Hardy_0003

Larry Hardy was a pitcher for the San Diego Padres in 1974-1975.  During the 1974 season, he appeared in 76 games, which was an all-time record for a rookie.  He won 9 games and saved 2 that season.  We contacted Larry and asked him a few questions.  We hope you’ll enjoying hearing from Larry.
