Bill Hallahan

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

William Anthony “Wild Bill” Hallahan (August 4, 1902 - July 8, 1981) was the starting and losing pitcher of the inaugural 1933 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, in which he gave up a home run to Yankees slugger Babe Ruth in the third inning. Living up to his nickname, Wild Bill made limited appearances with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1925 and 1926, then spent a couple of years in the minors before finding a place in the Cardinals starting rotation in 1930. He was a hard throwing, but erratic left hander who threw for the Cardinals (1925-1926, 1929-1936), the Reds (1936-1937) and the Phillies (1938). He led the National League twice in strikeouts and once in wins, but also led the league in walks twice and three times in wild pitches. Hallahan was a solid starting pitcher from 1930-1936, leading the Redbirds prior to the emergence of Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean. Wild Bill was a member of four National League pennant-winning Cardinals teams and won three World Series (1926, 1931, 1934) going 3-1 with 27 strikeouts and posting a 1.36 ERA in seven postseason games. Bill Hallahan retired as a member of the Phillies in 1938 with a 102-194 record, 856 strikeouts a 4.03 ERA, 770 walks and 71 wild pitches.
