Happy Reds birthday, Hank Johnson!
May 21, 1906
Hank Johnson went 14-9 for the Yankees in 1928, but was left off their postseason roster. Only three pitchers appeared in the ’28 World Series for the Yanks: Hall of Famer Waite Hoyt, American League wins leader George Pipgras, and late-season pickup Tom Zachary. Johnson later played for the Red Sox and the Philadelphia Athletics before wrapping up his career in 1939 with the Reds.
