Thomas Jefferson Bridges (December 28, 1906 - April 19, 1968) took four no-hitters in to the ninth inning from 1929-1933, including a perfect game blowout of the Washington Senators that he was one out away from completion before surrendering a pinch-hit single. Played his entire career with the Detroit Tigers (1930-1943, 1945-1946) and was one of the most dominant pitchers in the 1930s and 1940s. From 1932-1940, Bridges won a dozen or more games in each of the nine campaigns including three consecutive 20-win seasons. In 1936, he led the American League in wins (23), games started (38) and strikeouts (175). Twice in his career he led the league in games started and strikeouts, and once led the league in wins, saves, hit batsmen and home runs allowed. Most notably, Tommy Bridges gave up Babe Ruth’s 700th home run in 1934. With a 21-10 record in 1935, he helped the Tigers win the American League pennant and he threw a complete game victory in Game 5 9f the 1935 World Series to close out the Chicago Cubs. He appeared in three other World Series (winning two total – 1935, 1945) with Detroit and is one of two Tigers, Hank Greenberg being the other, to appear in four Fall Classics. He was a six-time All-Star Game selection. Following a yearlong stint in the service in 1944 Bridges returned to the Tigers in a more limited role for two more seasons. Tommy Bridges finished his career in 1946 with a 194-138 record adding 1,674 strikeouts and a 3.57 ERA in 424 games, 200 of which he completed.
