I don't know if he still rides, but I was surfing around Tigers info and found this:

Back in '68 with the Tigers doing well, Lolich was forbidden to ride until after the season. The organization felt there was to much riding on him to risk an injury. And the rest is history. As a side note I was stationed out in Topeka, Kansas that year, a devout Cardinals town for the series, and passed up many bets offered. Had I of taken most of them life would have been changed forever.
