Al Downing will forever be remembered as the pitcher who allowed Hank Aaron’s 715th home run, surpassing Babe Ruth’s long withstanding record. Thankfully, Downing was with the Dodgers at that point.
Downing played nine years with the Yankees, the team he was brought up with, and was a one-time All-Star in 1967. His career record: 123-107, 3.22 ERA, 1,639 SO, 1.269 WHIP.
