    I use to live in Michigan. Fidrych and a few other Tigers lived in appartments in the town I grew up in.
    The story is he got into a fight in a bar in town. And got his pitching arm wrenched behind his back.
    That was the cause of his injury. I was only 17 yrs. old at the time so I wasn't there. True or not,
    who knows? But thats the legend in the town I'm from.
