Sutton's Work Ethic Paved Way to 300 Wins

June 28, 1986

On the occasion of Don Sutton's 300th win, I am reminded of his remarkable work ethic as a young Dodger in the 1960s. One evening when he was not a particularly effective pitcher, he was taken out of the game in the middle innings. Instead of returning to the clubhouse, he went directly to the bullpen and worked for a considerable time on his then-imperfect curve.

I don't recall seeing another pitcher demonstrate determination such as that.
