Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Walter Kirby Higbe (April 8, 1915-May 6, 1985) was an American right-handed starting pitcher in Major League Baseball from 1937 to 1950. He was born in Columbia, South Carolina, and died there as well. Higbe began his career in 1937 with the Chicago Cubs before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in the middle of the 1939 season. A hard thrower and liver, he was selected to the All-Star team in 1940. Following the season, he was traded again, this time to the Brooklyn Dodgers. He enjoyed his most successful season in 1941 when he went 22-9, tying teammate Whit Wyatt for the league lead in wins and finishing seventh in the MVP voting.show more
