Lefty Gomez
(b. November 26, 1908 - d. February 17, 1989)
Lefty Gomez's sense of humor was matched only by his skill on the mound. A 20-game winner four times for the Yankees of the 1930s, Gomez went undefeated in six World Series decisions. He led the AL in Ks three times and in ERA twice. His secret to success? Quipped Lefty, "Clean living and a fast outfield." "Goofy" was 189-102 with a 3.34 ERA in his career.
