Remembering Fernandomania

MLB Network published this video item, entitled “Remembering Fernandomania” – below is their description.

Today, May 14th marks the 40th anniversary of one of baseball’s most amazing phenomenon – 20 year-old Fernando Valenzuela’s remarkable 8th consecutive victory to start the 1981 season.

It was called Fernandomania, and even without any social media or sports talk radio back then, the whole country followed each Valenzuela start. Jon Morosi has more on Fernando’s magical season and its impact that can still be felt four decades later.
