Walter Johnson One of my all-time favorite baseball players: Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators. The scouting report on Johnson's blazing fastball noted, 'You can't hit what you can't see.' Once Johnson pitched three complete-game shutouts in a single weekend. For years his lifetime total of 3,508 strikeouts seemed insurmountable. Johnson retired in 1927. It took nearly 50 years for another pitcher to reach 3,000 strikeouts. Johnson became a beloved baseball figure--largely because he had the misfortune to spend his entire career with the lowly Senators. In 1924, when Johnson finally got to pitch in a World Series at age 36, the public rejoiced when he won the seventh and decisive game to give Washington its only World Series triumph.

A class act if ever there was one! If you haven't read the biography his grandson wrote on him, catch it. The greatest pitcher of all time.

There is a theory among baseball historians that if Walter Johnson had pitched for a New York team instead of Washington and had gotten the requisite publicity, there is no doubt he would be regarded as the greatest pitcher ever to take the mound.
