Dennis Leonard may never have been an All Star but the mustachioed hurler had some campaigns where you thought he might have been considered for it…especially if the All Star Game was voted on after the season!

Three times Leonard was a 20 Game Winner (to date the only Royal to do so), and he would also finish in the top ten in Cy Young voting twice.  Leonard actually won the most games of any righthander from 1975 to 1981.  With a good career record of 144 and 106, Dennis Leonard can be considered one of the unsung heroes of the folklore of the Royals and he deserves a lot of credit for their 1980 World Series appearance.
