1966: Sandy Koufax becomes the first three-time Cy Young Award winner. He also won the award in 1963 and 1965. The record would be exceeded when Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Steve Carlton won his fourth Cy Young in 1982, and again when Greg Maddux of the Atlanta Braves won his fourth in 1995. The record would also eventually be further exceeded by Randy Johnson (five) and Roger Clemens (seven).
