The other aces: Spud Chandler (11 seasons), Dave Foutz (11 seasons), Joe McGinnity (10 seasons), Deacon Phillippe (13 seasons), Jay Powell (11 seasons), Babe Ruth (10 seasons), and Urban Shocker (13 seasons).

In 1934 , Dizzy Dean won a major league leading 34 games ( Top 25 ). No pitcher in the National League has ever won thirty-or-more games since Diz . St. Louis Cardinals who won 30-or-more games before Dizzy: Jack Stivetts (33 wins in 1891), Elton Chamberlain (32 wins in 1889), Silver King (35 wins in 1889, 45 wins in 1888, 32 wins in 1887), Dave Foutz (41 wins in 1886, 33 wins in 1885), Bob Caruthers (30 wins in 1886, 40 wins in 1885), and Tony Mullane (35 wins in 1883).

Dizzy Dean Hall of Fame Plaque
Dizzy Dean | National Baseball Hall of Fame Plaque | Class of 1953 ( HOF )
Author / historian Bill James ranked The Great Man as the 25th best pitcher in baseball history, writing, "Dizzy Dean, as most of you know, was a figure of myth and legend, the subject of countless anecdotes still told today. A movie was made about him, books are still written about him regularly although he is now long dead. With just 150 wins, he rushed headlong into the Hall of Fame, and had a lucrative post-playing career as a broadcaster and public speaker."
