    The Year of the pitcher:
    In the "Year of the Pitcher", Denny McLain wins 31 regular season games, making him the first 30-game winning pitcher since Dizzy Dean in 1934. Bob Gibson sets the modern baseball record for ERA with a 1.12.
    from wilkepedia 1968, the year in baseball

    After that year, MLB decided that pitching had become to dominant. So they lowered the pitching mound by 6 inches.
