On December 30, 1935, future Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax is born in Brooklyn, New York.  He will go on to pitch for the hometown Dodgers, but his career really takes off when the team moves to Los Angeles. Koufax will post a 129-47 record and capture three Cy Young Awards. He will win all three when only one award is given annually for the two leagues and help the Los Angeles Dodgers to two World Series titles before retiring in 1966.
