    General Crowder

    The 5'10" Crowder topped the AL in winning percentage for the Browns in 1928 (21-5, .808). In 1930 St. Louis traded him with Heinie Manush for Goose Goslin of the Senators. Crowder led the AL in wins with Washington in 1932 (26-13) and 1933 (24-15). Selected to play in the first All-Star Game in '33, he hurled three innings for the victorious AL. Pitching for the Tigers in Game Four of the 1935 World Series, Crowder beat the Cubs 2-1; Detroit took the Series in six games. His nickname came from General Enoch Crowder, originator of America's WWI draft lottery. (TJ)
