Wesley Ferrell - 1933 Goudey

Wesley Cheek Ferrell (February 2, 1908 - December 9, 1976) was a hotheaded pitcher who was fined for refusing to leave a game, for leaving a game without permission and for pulling his team off the field when he was a manager. Wes was the hard-throwing right-handed brother of Hall of Fame catcher Rick Ferrell who in his own right, made a case for himself with Hall of Fame voters. He set a Major League record when he won 20 or more games in four consecutive seasons to start his career. He was a six-time 20-game winner and won eleven of more contests in 10 of his 15 seasons in the American League. A lifetime Al pitcher, he spent time with the Indians (1927-1933), the Red Sox (1934-1937), the Senators (1937-1938), the Yankees (1938-1939), the Dodgers (1940) and the Braves (1941). Not only did he lead the Al in wins once, but he twice led in games started, three times in innings pitched and four times in complete games. He was a two-time All-Star selection and was among the top twenty in MVP voting four times. In 1931, Ferrell no-hit the St. Louis Browns, walked three and allowed his brother, Rick, to reach base on an error by the shortstop. Wes was also one of the greatest hitting pitchers of all-time as he posted a .280 career batting average with 329 hits including 38 home runs and 208 RBI. In 1931, Ferrell matched the number of home runs he surrendered (9) by blasting equally as many. Arm issues limited the number of games he was able to play and he retired following the 1941 season. Wes Ferrell finished his career with a 193-128 record, 374 games (227 of which he completed), 985 strikeouts and a 4.04 career ERA.
