Professional Baseball Player. He played Major League baseball as a pitcher for fifteen seasons with the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago White Sox. A control pitcher who seldom hit a batter or threw a wild pitch, he had the lowest walk ratio in 1932 and 1933. Debuting on September 27, 1928 with Cleveland when he was 25 years old, he was a starting pitcher during the early years of his career, but later became an effective relief pitcher as the bullpen in baseball was more regularly used. His best season was in 1932 when he won 15 games while posting a 4.08 Earned Run Average and finishing 21 of his 32 starts, and he led the American League with three shutouts in 1930. When he was converted to a reliever, he led the American League in games pitched in 1937 and 1939, and led the league in saves in 1937. He appeared in 434 games during his career with 89 wins against 93 losses, threw 62 complete games and recorded 8 shutouts along with 64 saves. He is on Babe Ruth's home run victim list, surrendering four to the Ruth.
