On July 24, Blyleven became the first Dutch-born played to be enshrined into the Hall of Fame. Blyleven, whose amazing curveball frustrated batters over his 22-year career, finished with 287 wins, 3,701 strikeouts, 60 shutouts. The starter also won a pair of World Series rings, one with the Pirates (1979) and one with the Twins (1987). Blyleven was inducted in the Class of 2011 alongside Roberto Alomar and Pat Gillick.
