In the 1950`s American broadcasters compiled player and World Series
highlight programs to use as `fillers` when scheduled live broadcasts were rain
delayed and BASEBALL`S HALL OF FAME has been compiled from these unique records
of the golden age of the game.
Leo Durocher was a "good-field, no-hit" shortstop for 17 years, but gained his greatest notoriety for accomplishments after his playing days. His combative and swashbuckling style, brilliant baseball mind, uncanny memory and fiery disposition became The Lipisi trademarks as a colorful and controversial manager for 24 seasons with the Dodgers, Giants, Cubs and Astros. He compiled 2,009 wins in 3,740 games, captured three pennants and won the World Series in 1954.
Bob Feller`s blazing fastball set the standard against which all of his successors have been judged. "Rapid Robert" spent his entire 18-year career with Cleveland, amassing 266 victories and 2,851 strikeouts, while leading the league in strikeouts seven times. The fireballer authored three no-hitters and 12 one-hitters while winning 20 or more games six times.
