Prince Hal Newhouser won back-to-back Most Valuable Player Awards (1944-45), and with his blazing fastball, he became a strikeout king. Over 17 campaigns, 15 with Detroit, he won 207 games. From 1944-46, he recorded consecutive win totals of 29, 25 and 26, with annual ERAs of 2.22, 1.81 and 1.94, respectively. Newhouser hurled the pennant clincher for the Tigers in 1945 and followed with two World Series victories over the Chicago Cubs.
