Chet Nichols

Tutored by his father, NL pitcher Chet Nichols, Sr., the younger Nichols went 11-8 with a league-best 2.88 ERA (156 innings) as a Braves rookie in 1951. Less effective after losing two years to military service, he won nine games in both 1954 and 1955 and was sent down. Arm troubles thwarted his comeback attempts, but he returned as a Red Sox reliever in the 1960s. He later became vice president of the Pawtucket Red Sox (International League).
