Gen. Crowder

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Alvin Floyd “General” Crowder (January 11, 1899 - April 3, 1972) led the American League in wins in 1932 and 1933. Despite never reaching such a high rank during his Army service, Crowder was nicknamed the “General” after General Enoch Crowder, developer of the draft lottery of WWI. With a slow start, learning to play baseball in the service, Crowder made hi Major League debut in 1926, after several years in the minors, with the Washington Senators at 27. After Washington traded Al to the St. Louis Browns in 1927, he enjoyed a 21-5 season and led the American League in winning percentage (.808). Crowder led the AL in games, games started and shutouts once in his career and twice led the American League in wins on his return trip to the Senators. Al Crowder played 11 seasons with the Washington Senators (1926-1927, 1930-1934), the St. Louis Browns (1927-1930) and the Detroit Tigers (1934-1936). In 1933, he pitched in the inaugural Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Al was a member of three consecutive AL pennant winners, the 1933 Senators and the 1934-35 Detroit Tigers, where he captured a World Series championship in 1935. Al Crowder finished his career on the high note of a World Series championship and compiled a record of 167-115 with 799 strikeouts and a 4.12 ERA over eleven seasons.
