Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Murry Monroe Dickson (August 21, 1916 - September 21, 1989) was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball during the 1940s and 1950s. He was known for his vast array of pitches and deliveries - one of his managers, Eddie Dyer, nicknamed him "Thomas Edison" for his inventiveness - and for the longevity of his career. Although Dickson would lead the National League in defeats for three successive seasons (1952-54), he pitched the St. Louis Cardinals to the 1946 NL pennant by beating the Brooklyn Dodgers in the decisive Game 2 of the league playoffs.show more
