Mathewson dominated baseball in the early 1900s with the New York Giants. Posthumously elected to the Hall of Fame as one of its “first five” inaugural members, Mathewson is the only pitcher to rank in the top 10 in career wins and ERA. Mathewson tallied 373 wins and posted a lifetime 2.13 ERA. A two-time World Series champion, Mathewson led the NL in wins four times, was a five-time ERA and strikeout leader, won two Triple Crowns, and pitched two no-hitters. In 1908, Mathewson recorded a ridiculous 37 wins, 259 strikeouts and a 1.43 ERA.
