Fred Fitzsimmons was a portly pitcher with excellent control despite relying heavily on a knuckleball. He combined with Carl Hubbell to form a tough righty/lefty duo on the New York Giants of the 1930s, and his trade to the rival Dodgers in 1937 was a shock to his fans. He pitched in three World Series, and won 217 games with a winning percentage near .600 for his career. After his pitching days ended, he managed and coached in three different decades.
