Don Sutton

A model of consistency and durability throughout his 23-year major league career, Don Sutton won 324 games and struck out 3,574 batters. A four-time All-Star, he reached double figures in wins in 21 of his 23 seasons and struck out over 100 batters in each of his first 21 campaigns. During his rookie season he had 209 strikeouts which were the most by a NL rookie since Grover Cleveland Alexander ‘s 227 in 1911. En route to defeating every major league team, he earned a spot among the career leaders in losses (sixth), games started (second), strikeouts (fourth), innings pitched (sixth), and shutouts (eighth) at the time he retired. He never pitched a no-hitter, but he did pitch five one-hitters and nine two-hitters. He became the first pitcher to win 300 games while only once winning 20 in a season. He made his way past the 3,000-strikeout mark by racking up a record 21 consecutive 100-plus strikeout seasons (recording 99 in his final season), with a high of 217 in 1969. Sutton was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.
