Did you know that Johnny Allen was named one of the 100 Greatest Cleveland Indians Players Top 100 Greatest Indians and Allen was named one of the thirty-six pitchers.

Johnny Allen made it to the show in an unusual way: While working as a bellhop in a hotel, he was told to take some fans to the room of Yankee scout Paul Krichell. Allen told Krichell that he was a pitcher, and the scout arranged a tryout. Allen was an immediate success for the Yankees, debuting in 1932 with a 17–4 record and a 3.70 ERA for the World Champions.

After Johnny Allen was traded to the Indians (sore arm & contract issues), he had a 3.44 ERA and joined the 20 Wins Club . The next season he won his first fifteen decisions, one short of the record held by Walter Johnson , then lost his next start 1–0 on an unearned run, but his 15–1 mark that year set a winning percentage record that lasted until Roy Face bettered it with an 18–1 record in 1959.
