The winningest pitcher in Cleveland Indians history, in 1962 BOB FELLER (1918-2010) became the first pitcher since charter member Walter Johnson to be elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Though regarded as the fastest pitcher of his day, "Rapid Robert" himself attributed his strikeout records to his curve and slider. Feller set a ML record with 208 walks and led the AL in both strikeouts and wins from 1939 to 1941. He was voted All-Star in 1938-41, 1946-48 and in 1950. The first Major Leaguer to volunteer for military service after Pearl Harbor, Feller sacrificed four seasons at the peak of his career to patriotic service in the US Navy. BOB GIBSON holds the major league record for lowest Earned Run Average of 1.12 in 1968, the year he was the National League's Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner. He also won the Cy Young Award in 1970. In his 17-year career, all with the St. Louis Cardinals, Gibson won 251 games including 56 shutouts. He was the first pitcher to strike out at least 200 batters in nine seasons, joining, in 1974, Walter Johnson as the only pitchers to strike out at least 3,000 batters in a career. Gibson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1981, his first year of eligibility. The pride of both the Dominican Republic and the Giants, JUAN MARICHALwon 243 games and lost only 142 over 16 marvelous seasons. The high-kicking right-hander enjoyed six 20-win seasons, hurled a no-hitter against Houston in 1963, and was named to nine All-Star teams. The "Dominican Dandy" twice led the National League in complete games and shutouts, finishing 244 contests during his career while fanning 2,303 and compiling a 2.89 ERA. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983. JIM "CATFISH" HUNTER, Baseball's first modern-day free agent to enter the Hall of Fame (1983) pitched for the Kansas City and Oakland A's (1965-1974) and New York Yankees (1975-1979).
