Allie Reynolds - 1951 Bowman

Allie Pierce Reynolds (1917-1994) was drafted by the New York Giants as a halfback out of Oklahoma A&M, now Oklahoma State, but Reynolds chose baseball as he preferred the diamond to the gridiron and saw greater riches in baseball. He signed with the Cleveland Indians in 1939 and spent three seasons in the minors honing his pitching skills. In 1942, after floundering in the minors, Allie considered retirement, but was called up to the Majors after he went 18-7 with a 1.56 ERA, threw 11 shutouts, 193 strikeouts and 21 complete games in his final year with Wilkes-Barre. Reynolds was added to the depleted Cleveland Indians pitching staff in 1943 as manager Lou Boudreau utilized the big, durable right-hander as a reliever between starts. Allie Reynolds pitched 13 seasons in the big with the Indians (1942-1946) and the New York Yankees (1947-1954). Superchief, as he was called due to his American-Indian heritage, won ten or more games in every full season he played in the American League, posting a career high 20 wins in 1952. That same season, Allie led the AL in earned run average (2.06), and shutouts (6) for a second straight year. He also led the AL in strikeouts (151) in his rookie campaign (1943). Allie Reynolds was a six-time MLB All-Star selection and helped the New York Yankees win six World Series titles (1947, 1949-1953). Reynolds compiled a record of 182-107 in 434 games with 137 complete games, 49 saves, 1,423 strikeouts and a career 3.30 ERA.
