Shoun went 7-7 in his first full year with the Cubs before going to the Cardinals in a headline-generating trade for Dizzy Dean the following April. He led the National League in appearances in 1939 and 1940; his nine saves in ’39 tied him for the league lead. Sold to Cincinnati in 1942, he went 14-5 in 1943, topping the NL with 13 wins out of the bullpen. Shoun made a career-high 21 starts in 1944. On May 15, he faced Boston’s Jim Tobin, who had thrown a no-hitter 18 days earlier. Shoun matched the feat, and missed a perfect game only by walking Tobin in the third inning.
