George Walberg - 1933 Goudey

George Elvin “Rube” Walberg (1896-1978) gave up more home runs to Babe Ruth than any other pitcher of the era. Rube began his career in 1923 playing 15 seasons with the New York Giants (1923), the Philadelphia Athletics (1923-1933) and the Boston Red Sox (1934-1937). From 1926-1932, he won 12 games or more in each season with the Athletics and led the league in innings pitched (291.0) in 1931. Utilized as a relief pitcher and spot starter, Walberg stared only one of the 18 World Series games in which he appeared. He was a member of three consecutive American League pennant-winning A’s teams (1929-1931) and won two World Series in 1929 and 1930. In the Depression years, Connie Mack dismantled the powerful Athletics team to keep the franchise afloat and Walberg was sent to the Red Sox with Lefty Grove and Max Bishop for cash. Rube Walberg finished his playing career after the 1937 season having compiled a 155-141 record with 1,085 strikeouts and a 4.16 earned run average.
