A major star of the Cincinnati Reds staff in the late 1930’s, Paul Derringer would win 161 Games for the team.  Derringer would be named to six All Star Games (including five straight from 1938 to 1942) and would have four 20 Win seasons and was known for rarely walking batters in his prime.  Notably, he would have two straight top five appearances in MVP voting (1939 & 1940).

His most satisfying season was in 1940 where he exorcised his previous playoff demons by winning Game 4 and 7 en route to a Reds World Series Championship.
