Paul Derringer - 1934 Goudey

Samuel Paul Derringer (October 17, 1906 - November 17, 1987) was one of the premier starting pitchers in the National League in the 1930s and 1940s and pitched the first ever night game on May 24, 1935 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt turned on the lights from the White House as Derringer’s Cincinnati Reds faced the Philadelphia Phillies. Paul began his career with the St. Louis Cardinals (1931-1933) posting an 18-8 record his rookie season to lead the NL in winning percentage (.692). He also helped lead the Redbirds to the 1931 World Series title over the Philadelphia Athletics. He spent the majority of his 15-year career with the Reds (1933-1942) and capped off his career in three seasons with the Chicago Cubs (1943-1945). Derringer led the NL in starts and hits allowed three times, winning percentage and strikes/walks ratio twice and once in games, complete games, innings pitched, earned runs, batters faced and losses (27) in 1933. Paul Derringer appeared in three other Fall Classics with the Reds losing in 1939, but returning to win the World Series the next year (1940) and losing with the Cubs in 1945. The six-time All-Star had his best year in 1939 when he went 25-7 with 128 Ks and a 2.93 ERA in 38 games. He was also among the top 20 in voting for the NL MVP award six times. Paul Derringer retired following the 1945 season with a career record of 223-212, 1,507 strikeouts, 251 complete games, 32 shutouts and 29 saves and a 3.46 ERA in 445 starts in 579 appearances. The two-time World Series champion also had a .969 career fielding percentage.
