The Texan was a fastballer with a sharp curve. Going 22-6 in 1942, he led the AL in wins, complete games (22), innings (281), and strikeouts (113). He again led in complete games (20) in 1943, and his .783 winning percentage (18-5) in 1944 was the AL’s best. After spending 1945 in the military, Hughson returned in good form, going 20-11 in 1946. Arm problems prematurely ended his successful career.
