Murry Dickson

Since his six-pitch repertoire required much experimentation, Dickson came to be called “the Thomas Edison of the mound.” He pitched in the 1943 WS while on furlough from the army. Topping the NL with a .714 winning percentage in 1946, his 15-6 record included the Cardinals’ pennant-clinching playoff victory over Brooklyn. Sold to Pittsburgh in January 1949, Dickson had a career-high 20 wins in 1951. He led the league in losses three straight years (1952-54), losing 60 games over that span. Dickson received credit for the save in the 1953 All-Star Game.
