SP - Bob Feller

Image

Once struck out 17 hitters as a 17 year old.
Career 266-162 with a 3.25 ERA and 2581 Ks
After he was top-3 in MVP voting as a pitcher 3 seasons in a row, Feller volunteered and lost nearly 4 of his prime seasons to the war
If Feller pitched to his pace before and after he came back, he would have had an extra 90 wins and 950 Ks. Probably 25 wins per year with 260 Ks
8 time all star
Pitching Triple Crown in 1940
Won 20+ games 6 times
6 times he led the AL in Wins and 7 times in Ks
Pitched 3 no-hitters and 12 one hitters. One of his no hitters was on opening day 1940
Never played a day in the minors

He was also very happy when being told he was drafted by the HGH Heroes

I was about, about to pick someone else, had it all written in and everything so he better fall to me (Im afraid a2d will pick him for some reason)

Instead, Ill select someone who should undoubtedly be in the HOF

OF, "Shoeless" Joe Jackson


Image

In, a little over 9 full seasons he had 1772 hits
356 career BA is 3rd all time
423 OBP is 17th all time
940 OPS is 32th all time
OPS+ of 170 is 9th all time
In the WS he "threw" he hit 375 with 12 hits and no errors

"I copied Jackson's batting style because I thought he was the greatest hitter I had ever seen. I still think the same way." - The Babe, 1942
