Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Before being drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, Al Hrabosky was a star baseball player for the Hornets in the 1960s. Nicknamed “The Mad Hungarian” for the way he worked himself up prior to each game, he was considered one of the best relief pitchers in the game, earning the National League Reliever of the Year award in 1975. In addition to the Cardinals, Hrabosky played for the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves before retiring in 1982. After retiring, he embarked on a second career as a sportscaster for a St. Louis television station.
