Major League Baseball Player. The right-hander was an 18-game winner for the New York Giants in 1939 and pitched a career-high 243 innings that season. He broke with the Giants in 1935 and stayed with them until traded with Paul "Daffy" Dean to the St. Louis Cardinals on May 14, 1941 for pitcher "Fiddler" Bill McGee. He pitched in three World Series in 1936 and 1937 with the Giants and 1942 with the Cardinals and had no decisions in six relief appearances. He was 10-5 with a 2.84 earned run average in 1943, but the Cardinals sold him to the Cincinnati Reds on June 15, 1944. His combined record for the two teams was 14-10 with a 3.07 ERA. He spent the 1945 season in the military. Gumbert became a reliever in 1947 for the Reds and led the National League with 10 wins and 10 losses in relief. The following year he led the league in both categories again plus 17 saves. He was sold to the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 27, 1949 and finished his career with them with one appearance in 1950. For his 15-year career he posted a 143-113 record, a 3.68 ERA, 94 complete games in 235 starts, 13 shutouts and 48 saves. Fives times he pitched more than 200 innings in a season. (bio by: Ron Coons)
