Dave Foutz is part of an elite set of pitchers in Major League history whose career on the mound spanned at least ten seasons and NEVER once included a losing record! The other aces: Spud Chandler (11 seasons), Dizzy Dean (12 seasons), Joe McGinnity (10 seasons), Deacon Phillippe (13 seasons), Jay Powell (11 seasons), Babe Ruth (10 seasons), and Urban Shocker (13 seasons).

Did you know that when Dave Foutz had 86 putouts in the American Association, with the St. Louis Browns, he set a Major League record for most putouts in a season by a pitcher - which remains unbeaten through today?
