Bill Swift - 1934 Goudey

William Vincent “Bill” Swift (June 19, 1908 - February 23, 1969) won three games down the stretch for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1941 as they captured the National League pennant by three games over the St. Louis Cardinals. However, he did not pitch during the 1941 World Series against the New York Yankees. Swift went 58-36 in the minor leagues before being called up by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1932. In his first five Major League seasons, Bill won 11 or more games each year, striking out 70 or more batters. Swift was a hard-throwing sidearm slinger who began his career as a starter, but was primarily used in relief late in his career. He pitched 11 seasons in the big leagues with the Pirates (1932-1938), the Boston Braves (1940), the Dodgers (1941) and the Chicago White Sox (1943). Not only did he enjoy success hurling, but he also batted an impressive .227 and posted a .961 fielding percentage in 336 career games. Bill Swift finished his Major League career in 1943 after going 95-82 with 78 complete games, seven shutouts, 20 saves, 636 strikeouts and a 3.58 career ERA in 1965 starts and 119 games finished.
