Freddie Fitzsimmons played the first dozen years of his career with the New York Giants after being acquired from Indianapolis of the American Association in the summer of 1925, and the year after, he was a fixture in the Giants rotation until he was traded to crosstown Brooklyn during the 1937 Season.
The righthander would not have a losing record in New York until 1935, which included a 20-Win year in 1928, 19 Wins in 1930, and 18 in both 1931 and 1934. Fitzsimmons cranked out well over 200 Innings nine years in a row (1926-34), and though he did not dazzle with Strikeouts, he found a way to get outs and was in the top ten in WHIP four times as a Giant.
Fitzsimmons would help the Giants win the 1934 and 1936 Pennant, and though he lost all three decisions, he was one of the reasons they got there, and New York would prevail in 1933. His overall record with New York of 170 and 114, a winning percentage of .599.
