Born and raised in Louisiana, Blue was drafted by the then-Kansas City Athletics in the second round of the 1967 draft.

The left-hander made his MLB debut as a 19-year-old in 1969 and, the next year, he threw a nine-strikeout no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins on Sept. 21.

Ten days earlier Blue had thrown a one-hitter against the Kansas City Royals.

At age 22, Blue became the youngest player to win the AL MVP award in the 20th century.
