Happy Reds birthday, Bucky Walters!


April 19, 1909

Bucky Walters was one of the star pitchers for the National League Champion Reds in 1939, and the World Champion Reds in 1940. Both years, he led the National League in victories and ERA, and was named the MVP in 1939. A six-time All-Star, Walters was a part of the first class of Reds Hall of Famers, along with Paul Derringer, Ernie Lombardi, Frank McCormick, and Johnny Vander Meer.
