Mike Mussina Should Be in the Hall of Fame

Mike Mussina never won the Cy Young Award. He made the All-Star team only five times over his 18 years in the big leagues. He won 20 games just once, in the final season of his career.

Mussina coaching high-school hoops

Mike Mussina won 270 games over the course of an 18-year career with the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees, and now the right-hander, who went out with a 20-win season at the age of 39 in 2008, is taking the reins of the program where it all started. The basketball program, that is. According to the Williamsport Sun-Gazette , Mussina has been hired as the head basketball coach...
