Happy 78th birthday to Sandy Koufax, made famous by his name being referenced in the film "The Big Lebowski." All right, perhaps he made himself famous by winning three Cy Young Awards for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the span of four seasons in the 1960s and retiring at age 30.

Koufax led the league in ERA from 1962 to 1966 and threw 31 shutouts in the final 150 starts of his career. Many believe it was the most dominant stretch of pitching in history.

In recent years, Koufax has served as an adviser and spring training instructor for the Dodgers, staying involved just enough to make everyone happy.
