Player Biography
One of Charley Finley’s “bonus babies” of the mid-1960s, Jim “Catfish” Hunter showed his brilliance in a May 1968 perfect game, the first hurled in the American League in 46 years. Hunter used control as his trump card and went on to five consecutive 20-win appearances, never losing his laid-back, down-home attitude. “If I hadn’t played baseball, I wanted to be a game warden or something,” he claimed. Sadly, Hunter’s life was cut short by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, the same disease that felled Lou Gehrig.
