Jesse Haines

Jesse Joseph Haines
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1970
Primary team: St. Louis Cardinals
Primary position: Pitcher

Jesse Haines was a durable right-hander and tough competitor who won 210 games during his 18 years with the Cardinals. By adding a knuckleball to his pitching repertoire, he became an ace, achieving 20 victories on three occasions and helping the Cardinals win five pennants from 1926-34. He authored a no-hitter against Boston in 1924, and two years later he defeated the Yankees twice in the World Series, tossing a shutout and the series-clincher.

"When I saw how hard a nice old man like Pop could take it after losing a game, I realized why he'd been a consistent winner and the Cardinals, too. I never forgot how much Haines expected of himself and of others. "
Terry Moore
