Joe Sewell - 1933 Goudey

Joseph Wheeler Sewell (1898-1990) was not only difficult to pry form the lineup, holding a record of 1,103 consecutive games started until Lou Gehrig topped it, but he was the hardest man in the history of the game to strikeout. A first-class contact hitter, Sewell struck out a mere 114 times in 7,132 at-bats at a rate of once every 63 at-bats. Playing for the Cleveland Indians (1920-1930) and the New York Yankees (1931-1933), Sewell compiled 2,226 hits, 1,141 runs, 1,055 RBI and a career .312 batting average. Despite the unfortunate circumstances that brought Joe to the big leagues (shortstop Ray Chapman died after he was hit in the head with a pitch), Sewell made the best of his call-up, helping the Indians to the 1920 American League pennant in his first year. Sewell’s extraordinary numbers at the plate may never be broken let alone approached. From 1925-1933, he stuck out 4, 6, 7, 9, 3, 8, 3, 4 times, respectively. Aside from his AL pennant win, Sewell was also a member of the 1932 World Series champion New York Yankees. The Veterans Committee elected Joseph Wheeler Sewell to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977.
