Juan Marichal Bio- Juan Marichal’s time in MLB is memorable for several reasons.

For one, he had one of the fullest windups in baseball, almost taking his left leg vertical before delivering the ball.  Second, in the summer of 1965 while playing against the Los Angeles Dodgers, in the first three innings he pitched the ball very close to the leadoff batter’s head, which in turn meant the opposing team’s pitcher did the same but this time, grazing his ear.

After a few nasty words, the benches for both teams were cleared and the brawl was on with Roseboro from the Giants getting 14 stitches and Marichal suspended.  Other than that, Marichal has been important to the MLB.  Starting his career in 1990 with the San Francisco Giants, he set multiple records over the years.  He also played for the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers.  Even with a long career in MLB, he only played in one World Series.  However in 1983, Marichal was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, his greatest accomplishment of all.  Several online merchants sell Juan Marichal baseball cards to include auction sites , as well as sports memorabilia shops.
