Willis Hudlin

Hudlin and his sidearm sinker accounted for the seventh-most wins (157) and third-most losses (151) in Indian history. His work was overshadowed by teammates Mel Harder and Bob Feller, the only pitchers to work more games for Cleveland than Hudlin’s 475. For three years, he was Cleveland’s Yankee-killer, with 14 wins against New York from 1927 to 1929. During one of those victories, on August 11, 1929, he surrendered Babe Ruth‘s 500th home run. The scholarly-looking Hudlin was a Detroit coach from 1957 to 1959 and later scouted for the Yankees.
