Long Tom Hughes

Nicknamed for his height, a then-impressive 6’1″, Hughes completed 32 starts as a Cubs rookie while striking out 225, the third-best NL rookie total ever. He jumped to the AL the following year, and helped the Red Sox to the first World Series with a 20-7, 2.57 mark as their third starter in 1903, behind Cy Young and Bill Dineen. He was the only Boston pitcher besides Young and Dineen to appear in the WS, losing Game Three.
