St. Louis Cardinals

All Time LH Pitcher

Harry Brecheen

Harry Breechen

When MLB went about selecting its All Century Team, The Sporting News (long time based in St. Louis) selected an all time St. Louis Cardinals team--one that would give the all time MLB team a good contest.

Brecheen finally made the majors to stay at age 28, and won 127 games in 10 seasons with the Redbirds. His best year was in 1948 when he won 20 games while leading the league with a 2.24 ERA, 149 strikeouts, and 7 shutouts. Nicknamed "The Cat" for his quick fielding skills, Brecheen starred in the 1946 World Series by winning three games against the Boston Red Sox.
