#409 Greg Maddux and Roger Clemens

About the Front: Here are a couple of right-handed starters who combined for 709 wins and 8,043 strikeouts. No big deal.

About the Back: Greg Maddux was about to enter another plane of existence when it came to control of his pitches. In 12 of his final 15 full seasons (1994-2008), Mad Dog issued less than the 38 free passes that he totaled in the first half of 1992.

11-Year-Old Kevin Says: Both of these guys would still be pitching (and pitching well) when I reached my mid-twenties. That would've probably surprised me 20+ years ago.

On This Date in 1993: April 21. Walker, Texas Ranger premieres on CBS. It would air for eight seasons and 203 episodes, helping to cement Chuck Norris' legacy as a cult hero.
