Decades '17 - Day 3
October 4, 2017

I Love the 90s!


BEFORE & AFTER

1973-1993
A major league pitcher toed the rubber for over 20 years, before retiring in 1993. Early in his career (before), he was considered a hard thrower and was paired up with another hard thrower (and future hall-of-famer) for many years. In his later years (after), he relied more on control and mixing speeds. It's been said of his fastball speed: he was "the guy who threw 90 in the 70s and 70 in the 90s."

Name the pitcher. (2 points)

Name his hard-throwing teammate (and future hall-of-famer) during his early years. (2 points)

Name the team they played on together. (2 points)

Name one other team the subject pitcher played for. (2 points)

1999

Name this pirate music sharing site. (3 points)

Bonus: Name the co-founders of this site. (3 points each)

Bonus hint: They have the same first name but spelled differently

Decades '17 - Day 3

I Love the 90s!
[Reveal] Spoiler:
BEFORE & AFTER

1973-1993
A major league pitcher toed the rubber for over 20 years, before retiring in 1993. Early in his career (before), he was considered a hard thrower and was paired up with another hard thrower (and future hall-of-famer) for many years. In his later years (after), he relied more on control and mixing speeds. It's been said of his fastball speed: he was "the guy who threw 90 in the 70s and 70 in the 90s."
