Murry Dickson was born on Monday, August 21, 1916, in Tracy, Missouri. Dickson was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 30, 1939, with the St. Louis Cardinals.

"Murry (Dickson) was a great competitor, but he never worried about anything. They called him the Tom Edison of the mound because he liked to experiment with pitches. He had the widest assortment I ever saw - fast ball, curve, slider, knuckler, sinker, screwball - and a remarkable arm that stood it all. Dickson wouldn't have given his mother anything good to hit." - Stan Musial in Musial with Bob Broeg (Stan Musial/Bob Broeg, 1964)
