SID FERNANDEZ(born October 12, 1962), is an American formerprofessional baseballleft-handedpitcher, who played inMLB for andAstros, from1983to1997.
Born inHonolulu, Hawaii, Fernandez was proud of his roots and wore uniform number50in honor of Hawaii being the 50th state. The theme song toHawaii-5-0was often played before his starts atShea Stadiumduring his days with the Mets.
Fernandez had an unorthodox pitching motion with a hesitation at the end followed by a sudden slingshot sidearm delivery. This deceptive motion, coupled with an effectivecurveball and a risingfastball, made him a majorstrikeoutthreat throughout his career. Fernandez' strikeouts were often commemorated by Mets fans in the outfield upper deck with taped signs marked with the letterSfor Sid.
While Fernandez was popular with Mets fans, his critics point out that his statistics were much better in pitcher-friendly Shea Stadium. Every season from1986to1991, excluding1989, his ERA was at least two runs higher on the road than at Shea.
Fernandez has the fourth-lowest ratio ofhitsper innings pitched in the major league history, behind onlyNolan Ryan,Clayton Kershaw, andSandy Koufax.
