The Chief has been the mainstay of the Yankee pitching staff for eight seasons, although he's had only one 20-game year. At his best in the clutch, he has won seven World Series games to tie an all-time record set by another Yankee great, Red Ruffing. Allie pitched two no-hit, no-run games during the 1951 season.
"Whitey" returned from 2 years in the Army last season and picked up right where he left off. The 1950 Rookie-of-the-Year was the 4th ranking A.L. hurler in Earned Run Average and paced the Yank mound staff in Wins, Strikeouts and Complete Games (11). Among "Whitey's" wins were 3 Shutouts and a 1 and 2-hitter.
