By Bruce Weirauch,

May 26, 1957 20 year old, Chicago Cubs Pitcher, Dick Drott strikes out 15 Milwaukee Braves (Drott strikes out Braves HOF, Hank Aaron 3 times and Eddie Matthews once). He pitches a complete game at Wrigley Field and gets the win as Chicago Cubs defeat Milwaukee Braves 7-5. Drott will win 15 games for the Cubs, but it is his best season with the team. He leaves the team when he is selected as the 7th pick in the expansion draft by the Houston Colt 45’s in 1961.

Iamcubsessed with the Chicago Cubs. My Cubsession started at birth like most Cubs fans. Being a Chicago Cubs fan has taught me how to handle the ups and downs everyone comes across in their real lives. My sports motto has always been "Believe or Leave". I choose to Believe and cheer for the North Siders in a positive way, Go Cubs!
