    No, I did not. And, no, I am not.

          • Are you Fred Hutchinson? Well one thing you mentioned was .... things named in your honor. He had the Hutch Award (perseverance in the face of adversity) and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center named after him. Plus he served frequently as a pinch hitter, and he missed time due to World War 2.

            I'll belly laugh if I'm right!

              Jason, enjoy your belly laugh- for I AM Fred Hutchinson! Here are the clues-

              #1- I did everything in baseball........Hutch made his MLB debut as a player at 19, was a manager at 32, and sadly died very young at age 45.
              #2- One of each- Hutch made two World Series appearances- one as a player with the Tigers in 1940, and one as a manager with the Reds in 1961.
              #3- Not an automatic out- Hutch was one of the better hitting pitchers in his era, hitting .263 for his career. He pinch hit over 90 times in his career, and counting his abbreviated rookie year in 1939, hit better than .300 four times.
              #4- Local boy makes good in his hometown, twice, several years apart- I had to cheat on this one. As an 18-year old, Hutch won 25 games for his hometown PCL Seattle Rainiers. Seventeen years later, while in between ML managing gigs, he led the Rainiers to the PCL pennant.
              $5- I could have been a test pilot.......Hutch was known for his temper; after a bad game, he would take his gloved hand and break every light bulb in the tunnel on his way to the clubhouse.
              And, #6- I had two things......In 1965, MLB initiated The Hutch Award. Later on, his brother, Dr. Bill Hutchinson, would found the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Care Center in Seattle.
              Good job, Jason!

                Good job, Jason!
                I'm just curious about what historical game he pitched in. I think I may know. But it wasn't eactly what I had in mind when I asked the question. I could see how it could be considered historical though.
                Good job Jason as usual.
                I will start a new one later tonight unless someone else wants to.

                  Maybe it's not as historical as I think. The first game Hutch pitched in the majors was against the Yankees- the day after Lou Gehrig's streak of 2,130 consecutive games ended.

                    i guess I might consider that historical. But I didn't think of that one.
                    He also gave up the homer Williams hit 502 ft in Fenway Park. Considering that the Red Sox have marked the seat where it landed, at least they consider it historical.
