|Original member of the "Gas House Gang". Dizzy Dean was a true champion whose pitching won many big games for the pennant winning and world champions' St. Louis Cardinals of the 1930's.
In 1934, Dizzy Dean and his rookie brother Daffy Dean won 49 games between them. Dizzy won 30 games, the last National Leaguer to win 30. His brother Daffy won 19 in this his rookie year. Dizzy was 30-7, pitching in 50 games, started 33 games and completed 24, while pitching 311 innings and threw 7 shutouts... ERA 2.66.
When news reporters asked what their names were, they both would give a different name every time. Seems that their parents really did name them Dizzy and Daffy.
