Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Dick Hyde was the last of the legitimate submarine pitchers. Sometimes, in fact, it looked as though he was throwing the ball from between his legs." - Author Brendan C. Boyd in The Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading and Bubble Gum Book (Ticknor & Fields Publishing, 04/01/1991, Page 75)

Richard Elde Hyde was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Washington Senators (1955, 1957-1960) and Baltimore Orioles (1961). When Dick, his nickname first took the field on April 23, 1955 , he became the first Champaign Central High School graduate to reach the majors!

Did you know that Dick Hyde, on April 21, 1957, was part of a unique baseball oddity which has only occurred seven times in Major League history? He relieved out of the Senators bullpen in both ends of a doubleheader and won Game 1 , but lost Game 2 - not that odd. However, George Zuverink relieved in both ends of that same doubleheader for the Orioles and lost Game 1 , but won Game 2 . Two relievers, two games, same day, both received both the decisions and both split the wins and losses evenly.

In 1958 , Dick Hyde led the American League in games finished (44) and saves (19). The Senators moved to Minnesota in 1961, where they now play as the Twins , making Hyde the last pitcher in a Washington Senators uniform to lead the Junior Circuit in games finished!
