Bump Hadley - 1938 Goudey

Irving Darius “Bump” Hadley (1904-1963) hit Mickey Cochrane in the head, while at the plate, with a pitch that nearly killed the Hall of Fame catcher and effectively ended his playing career. Hadley pitched in 528 games and started 355, but had a relatively mediocre career with sic winning seasons of his 16-year career. Two of his best years came in his rookie season with the Washington Senators in 1927 when he went 14-6 and with the Yankees in 1936 when he was 14-4 leading the American League in winning percentage (.778). He was a durable, yet erratic pitcher throughout his career leading the league once each in games and innings pitched, but also once in losses and hit batsmen and twice in earned runs and walks. Bump pitched for the Senators (191926-1931, 1935), the White Sox (1932), the Browns (1932-1934), the Yankees (1936-1940), the Giants (1941) and the Athletics (1941). He was a member of three New York Yankees World Series championship teams (1936-1937, 1939). Bump Hadley finished his career with a 161-165 record with 1,318 strikeouts and a 4.24 career ERA.
