Best Answer

Baseball mangers and players were impressed with Guidry's fastball that was clocked at 82 miles per hour. It's unusual for a pitcher of Guidry's height to pitch at that velocity. In addition, on June 17, 1978, Guidry pitched a 4-0 shut out which broke the teams 59 year old record for left handed pitchers. He struck out 18 Angels.
