Emil Leonard - 1951 Bowman

Emil John “Dutch” Leonard (1909-1983) was a member of the 1945 Washington Senators pitching staff that included four knuckleballers alongside Roger Wolff, Mickey Haefner and Johnny Niggeling. Leonard played 20 years with the Brooklyn Dodgers (1933-1936), Washington Senators (1938-1946), Philadelphia Phillies (1947-1948) and Chicago Cubs (1949-1953). Playing primarily for losing teams, Dutch had a winning record in seven seasons topping the 10-win mark twelve times including his 1939 20-win season. He was a five-times All-Star selection but never appeared in the postseason. Spending the majority of his career as a starter, Leonard led the National League in saves in 1935 with eight and finished his career with a total of 44 saves. Considered a highlight of his career, Leonard was called to pitch the ninth inning of a one-run game against the mighty Brooklyn Dodgers with the bases loaded, facing the heart of the order. Leonard set down Jackie Robinson, Gil Hodges and Roy Campanella to end the game and preserve the win. Dutch Leonard compiled a record of 191-181 with 192 complete games over 20 seasons, adding 1,170 strikeouts and a 3.25 career ERA.
