Former Mets pitcher who lost record 27 in a row dies at 51
NEW YORK | Former New York Mets pitcher Anthony Young, who set a major league record with 27 straight losses, has died. He was 51.
The Mets said Young died Tuesday in Houston after a long illness. He had told former teammates this spring that he had a brain tumor.
Young’s streak of losses began in 1992 with the Mets and stretched into the next season. In all, the drought spanned 74 appearances.
