Ray Kremer

An immediate success in 1924, Kremer went 18-10 for Pittsburgh, tying for the NL lead with 41 appearances and four shutouts. He later tied for the league high in wins with 20 in both 1926 and 1930, led the NL in ERA in 1926 and ’27, and in starts (38), innings (276) and hits (366) in 1930. A two-fisted drinker, Kremer was known to tear up a Pullman car and throw his teammates’ shoes out the window en route to the next city. But he had 15 or more wins for seven straight years. After pitching a complete game victory in Game Six of the 1925 WS, he returned to defeat the Senators in the clincher with four innings of relief work.
