#8 - Walter Johnson

This is the last pitcher on Dimino’s list, and in his opinion, the BEST pitcher on this list…YES BETTER THAN CY YOUNG, and some of his records stand NINE DECADES since Young retired from baseball!

Let’s start with the man’s statistics: 802 Games pitched, 417 Wins (2nd All Time), 3,509 Strikeouts, and a lifetime ERA of 2.17!  Johnson also holds the MLB record for Shutouts with 110, is second all time in complete games with 531 and was the strikeout leader 12X, eight of which were consecutive!

One other thing to mention too: Johnson was regarded by players and fans as one of the NICEST guys ever to play the game, and whenever his named was mentioned it was always used as an example of good sportsmanship and friendly competition.
