 HOWELL, Mich. (AP) -Former Cy Young Award winner Denny McLain has been released from jail following his arrest on a warrant related to a civil case.
Michael Olson, a lawyer for McLain, said Saturday that the former Detroit Tigers pitcher posted bond Friday night.
Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte said Friday that Oakland County sheriff's deputies had gone to McLain's house Friday in a foreclosure action.
Bezotte said they learned there was an outstanding warrant against McLain for failing to appear for a Jan. 16 court hearing in Brighton, then arrested him without incident. He appeared before a judge, who set bond at 10 percent of $175,000.
Olson said he doesn't represent McLain in the civil case, and doesn't believe that McLain has a lawyer in that case. He said he spoke with McLain on Saturday, and McLain didn't want to comment on his arrest.
Bezotte said he didn't know what the civil case is about.
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.
