Danny Young Birth

Born in Woodbury, Tennessee on November 3, 1971, Danny Young was a baseball player drafted by the Houston Astros from Cannon County High School in the 83rd round of the 1990 draft. Young’s time spent pitching in the major leagues was limited to just four games with the Chicago Cubs in the year 2000. This marked the end of Young’s major league career. His first game in the major leagues, which took place against the New York Mets in the Tokyo Dome on March 30, 2000, was undoubtedly the performance that stands out in his mind the most.

During that game, Young was called upon to pitch the top of the 11th inning with the intention of maintaining the 1–1 tie that had developed. After getting the first two outs of the inning out of the way swiftly, he proceeded to load the bases before allowing Benny Agbayani of the Mets to hit a grand slam home run. The four runs that were surrendered ended up being the decisive factor in the game, as the Cubs were unable to score in the bottom of the inning, resulting in a 5-1 loss to the Mets.
