Bill Hallahan


A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: St. Louis lefty William Anthony Hallahan is the ace of the Cardinals staff and one of the fastest pitchers in the NL. He led the league in strikeouts in 1930 and 1931. “Wild Bill” walks more batters than is desirable –hence the nickname– but lowered his ERA last year to 3.11. If necessary Hallahan can come out of the bullpen in the upcoming Century of Progress game, as he did to save Game 7 of the 1931 World Series. Hallahan was the hero of that Series for also winning Games 2 and 5 against a powerful A’s lineup, Game 2 in a 3-hit shutout. Hails from Binghamton, New York.
