Fred Fitzsimmons

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Frederick Landis Fitzsimmons (July 28, 1901 - November 18, 1979) was a career National League pitcher who spent 13 seasons with the New York Giants (1925-1937) and the Brooklyn Dodgers (1937-1943). Fat Freddie possessed a fierce knuckle-curve that dumbfounded batters and buckled their knees. Freddie was a member of the 1933 World Series champion Giants that also featured Hall of Fame hurler Carl Hubbell. He won three National League pennants with the Giants (1933, 1936) and Dodgers (1941) despite a 0-3 record in postseason play. Fitzsimmons led the NL in winning percentage twice in his career – in 1930 with a 73.1% as he went 19-7 and 1940 with a .889% as he posted a 16-2 record. The latter NL record stood until 1959 when Pirates pitcher Roy Face topped it with a 18-1 mark giving him a .947 winning percentage. Freddie was an excellent fielder as well posting a .960 fielding percentage with 942 assists and 237 putouts. Freddie Fitzsimmons retired with a 217-146 record adding 870 strikeouts, 186 complete games 30 shutouts and a 3.51 career ERA. After retirement, Fitzsimmons managed and coached until 1966, capturing another World Series victory in 1954 with the Giants and his former teammate and manager Leo Durocher at the helm.
