Ford, born Edward Ford in 1928, was the "money pitcher" on the great Yankee teams of the 1950s and early 1960s, earning him the moniker "Chairman of the Board". The wily southpaw's lifetime record of 236-106 gives him the best winning percentage (.690) of any 20th Century pitcher. He paced the American League in victories three times, and in ERA and shutouts twice. The 1961 Cy Young Award winner still holds many World Series records, including 10 wins and 94 strikeouts, and once pitched 33 consecutive scoreless innings in the Fall Classic. Ford has the most career wins in the history of the New York Yankees with 236. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.
