#26 - Lefty Grove

Let’s just get his out of the way…yes his nickname was “Lefty” and YES, it’s because he was a left-handed pitcher and YES that’s one of the most unoriginal nicknames in the history of baseball.

Now that we have that out of the way…

Grove was a nasty pitcher who played for the Philadelphia Athletics and Boston Red Sox over a 17 year career.  His numbers are impressive having totaled 300 wins in his career compared to only 141 losses.  In addition, he won the pitching Triple Crown (Best in wins, strikeouts and ERA) twice in 1929 and 1931, led the American League in wins in 4 seperate seasons, was a 6x all star, and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1947 and is widely regarded as one of the best left handed pitchers in history.
