Ken Raffensberger

1951 Bowman

Kenneth David Raffensberger (August 8, 1917 – November 10, 2002) A pretty good pitcher on some very bad teams, Ken Raffensberger’s record is not indicative of his talent. Had he pitched for first-division teams, he would have fared much better than his dismal 119–154 career record. His 3.60 ERA is a much better indicator. While playing for the eighth-place 1944 Phillies, Raffensberger made the All-Star team even though he led the National League with 20 losses. He paced the league in losses again in 1951 with 17. A lefty with excellent command, Raffensberger’s arsenal included a nasty curveball, slider, and forkball. His best season was with the 1952 Cincinnati Reds when, at age 34, he went 17–13 with a 2.81 ERA, twirled 18 complete games, and led the league with six shutouts. After baseball, the dependable lefty became a bartender in his hometown of York, Pennsylvania, and died in 2002 at the age of 85.
