|Right-hander goes 24-13 to lead Detroit to 100 Win Season |
George 'Hooks' Dauss, the brilliant 26-year old right-hander with a head-spinning curve ball, vaulted the Detroit Tigers to a second place American League finish in 1915.
Dauss, who picked up his nickname with a big roundhouse curve ball, was second in the league in wins, following only pitching legend Walter Johnson, who had 26 for the Washington Senators.
A willing worker, he led the league in innings pitched in 1915 with 309 2/3rd, and completed 27-of-35 games started and struck out 132 disgusted batters with his tantalizing curve ball.
George 'Hooks' Dauss three times won over 20 victories and holds the Detroit Tigers all-time record for most career wins with 222... finishing with a 222-182 record with a 3.30 ERA in 538 games, 3,390 2/3rd innings. Baseballhistorian.com - Detroit Tigers Baseball History
