Clifford Raphael Young (August 2, 1964 – November 4, 1993) was an American professional baseball pitcher. He pitched parts of three seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) between 1990 and 1993 for the California Angels (1990–91) and Cleveland Indians (1993). On May 21, 1993, Young picked up the only save of his abbreviated career in a 10-5 Indians win over the Tigers. Young went 3 2/3rd shutout innings, closing out the win for starter Mike Bielecki. [1] The Indians released him at the end of the 1993 season. Shortly thereafter, Young was killed in a traffic accident when the car he was driving went off the road and hit a tree, killing him instantly.[2]
