J.R. RICHARD. Photograph signed: "J.R. Richard". Color, 8x10. Among the most tragic figures in baseball annals is 6'8" J.R. Richard. With a fastball clocked as high as 100 mph, the Louisianan signed with Houston as their first pick in 1969, passing up 200 basketball scholarship offers. Facing the Giants in 1971, he fanned 15 batters to tie the record for most strikeouts in a major league debut. Richard led the NL in walks three times, but won 20 games in 1976 and 18 each year from 1977 to 1979. The Astros' ace led the NL with 303 strikeouts in 1978 and 313 in 1979, winning the league ERA title (2.71). In June 1980, Richard began complaining of "a dead arm." He was put on the disabled list, and though tests revealed a blockage in an artery leading to his right arm, doctors felt there was no danger. Two weeks later he suffered a stroke that ended his career. Fine condition.
