Sal Maglie - 1951 Bowman

Salvatore Anthony Maglie (1917-1992), or “Sal the Barber”, was renown for his perennial five-o’clock shadow, but earned his nickname for throwing close shaves inside to batters, and later responding to his command of the inside part of the zone saying “I own the plate”. Maglie joined the Giants in 1945, and then was banned from organized baseball by Commissioner Happy Chandler after Sal left Major League Baseball to play in the Mexican League. When the ban was rescinded, Maglie rejoined the Giants in 1950 and led the National League in winning percentage (.818), ERA (2.71), and shutouts (5) after going 18-4. In 1951, Sal led the NL in wins (23) helping the Giants reach the World Series against the New York Yankees. Sal was a candidate for numerous awards throughout his career including finishing second in Cy Young voting in 1956 and 1957 and was among MVP candidates six times, finishing second twice. In September of 1956 as a member of the Dodgers, Sal threw a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies. Maglie played ten years in Major League Baseball with the Giants (1945, 1950-1955), the Cleveland Indians (1955-1956), the Brooklyn Dodgers (1956-1957), the New York Yankees (1957-1958) and the St. Louis Cardinals (1958). He was named to the 1951 and 1952 MLB All-Star Games and played in three World Series (1951, 1954, 1956), winning the 1954 World Series over the Cleveland Indians. Sal Maglie wrapped up his career following the 1958 season compiling a 119-62 career record with a 3.15 ERA, 862 strikeouts and 25 shutouts in 1,723.0 innings pitched.
