#55 - Jim Palmer
Dimino says that he’s at the point in his list where he is starting to load up on pictures, and there’s few that can match the skills of Jim Palmer!
Palmer played all of his 19 years in the Majors with the Baltimore Orioles (1965–67, 1969–84) and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990. During the 1970’s, Palmer was the winning pitcher in 186 games which was the most wins in that decade by any MLB pitcher. He also won at least twenty games in eight seasons, received three Cy Young Awards, won four Gold Gloves during the decade, and his 268 career victories are an Orioles record. Most amazing stat: Palmer was also one of the rare pitchers who never allowed a grand slam in any major league contest!
