Former Cleveland Indians and San Diego Padres pitcher Charles Nagy was one of the more successful Major Leaguers to come out of Connecticut, playing 14 years in the big leagues from 1990 to 2003. He helped lead the Indians to two World Series appearances (1995, 1997) and was a three-time All-Star (1992, 1996, 1999), starting the 1996 All-Star Game. He also was a member of the 1988 USA Olympic baseball team. Nagy attended Roger Ludlowe High School in Fairfield and starred in baseball at UConn, becoming a first-round draft pick in the 1988 MLB draft.
