HOWELL, Mich. (AP) -Former Cy Young Award winner Denny McLain is in jail following his arrest on a charge of missing a court appearance in a civil case.
Livingston County sheriff Bob Bezotte says Oakland County deputies went to McLain's house Friday to evict the former Detroit Tigers pitching star and change the locks in a foreclosure action.
Bezotte said the deputies learned there was an outstanding warrant against McLain for failing to appear for a Jan. 16 court hearing, so they arrested him without incident. A judge set his bail at $175,000.
A message seeking comment was left with McLain's attorney, Michael Olson.
The 64-year-old McLain won two Cy Young Awards and was the major leagues' last 30-game winner, winning 31 for the world champion Tigers in 1968.
