Warneke won an even 100 games in his first tour with the Cubs, starring for pennant winners in 1932 and 1935. He was traded to the Cards in 1937, where his singing and guitar picking gained him a place in the Mudcat Band, a clubhouse hillbilly combo. He no-hit the Reds on August 30, 1941. The next year, the Cubs paid $75,000 to get him back but soon lost him to military service. After WWII he worked his way back to the NL as an umpire.
