Pitcher Bob Grim's rookie season in 1954 established an incredible record. When Grim burst onto the scene, he posted an incredible 20 wins against only six losses. This outstanding season for the second place Yankees earned Grim the American League Rookie of the Year honors and established him as one of the premier young pitchers in the game. Yet Bob Grim's amazing rookie year also created lofty expectations based on that magical year, which he struggled with the rest of his career. Bob Grim stayed with the Yanks through the first part of the 1958 season and he evolved into a relief pitcher. Yet 1954 and Grim's rookie season continues to remain in the memories of many fans.
