Few people recognized Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel as he stood at the end of Clematis Street in February with local officials at a kick off to a baseball dinner.

Wearing street clothes that day, Kuechel stood out mainly as some young guy with the long beard.

Kuechel left West Palm Beach after the dinner and reported to Kissimmee for spring training, the start of what turned out to be a stellar year.

On Wednesday, Keuchel was honored as the American League’s top pitcher by winning the Cy Young Award.

Keuchel was in West Palm earlier this year as part of a celebration of plans by the Astros and Washington Nationals to share their spring training operations south of 45th Street starting in 2017.
