Fred Hutchinson - 1951 Bowman

Frederick Charles “Fred, Hutch” Hutchinson (1919-1964) burst into baseball in 1938 with the unaffiliated Seattle Rainiers of the Class AA Pacific Coast League as he went 25-7 with a 2.48 ERA. His big league numbers, however, did not coincide and he went back and forth from the minors and the Detroit Tigers for his first four years. Hutch lost four years of prime pitching time when he joined the United States Navy during World War II, but he returned to Detroit in 1946 and put up six consecutive 10-win seasons from 1946 to 1951. He also led the American League in strikeout to walk ration four times and earned an AL All-Star nod in 1951. Fred played his entire career with the Tigers (1939-1940, 1946-1953) and served as player/manager during his final two seasons as a player (1952-1953). He spent one final season (1954) exclusively as a manager. Hutchinson posted a 95-71 record on the mound with 591 strikeouts, 81 complete games, 13 shutouts and seven saves in 169 starts and 242 game appearances. He was also an excellent hitting pitcher with a .263 career batting average and four home runs. Fred managed for 12 years in the Majors with the Tigers (1952-1954), the St. Louis Cardinals (1956-1958) and the Cincinnati Redlegs/Reds (1959, 1960-1964), but also managed for his former Rainiers team between Major League stints. He took the 1961 Reds to the National League pennant before being dispatched by the mighty New York Yankees in five games of the 1961 World Series. Over 12 years as a big league manager, Fred Hutchinson went 830-827 and won one pennant in 1,66 career games at the helm. Hutchinson died of cancer in 1964 at the age of 45.
