In the News: Village set for Cy Young Days

NEWCOMERSTOWN — A three-day event honoring one of the greatest pitchers in the history of Major League Baseball, Cy Young Days will be held here June 25-27. Denton True “Cy” Young was born March 29, 1867 in Gilmore, Ohio, near Newcomerstown, and compiled a unbreakable record of 511 victories on the major league level, leading to his name being used for the top pitching award each year, the Cy Young Award. Young reportedly earned the nickname “Cy” because when he threw against a wooden fence, he splintered it into pieces, just as a “cyclone” would. Young spent his off-seasons and the years after his retirement in the Newcomerstown area. There is a display of Cy Young memorabilia in the Temperance Tavern Museum on Canal Street in Newcomerstown.
