Irving Melrose "Young Cy" Young (July 21, 1877 – January 14, 1935) was a professional baseball pitcher. He played six seasons in Major League Baseball from 1905 to 1911 for the Boston Beaneaters/Doves, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Chicago White Sox.[1]

Young is one of only two pitchers in modern (post–1900) baseball history to win 20 games for a team that lost 100 games, going 20-21 for the 51-103 Beaneaters of 1905 (the other pitcher to do it was Ned Garver for the 1951 St. Louis Browns).[2]
