Extractions: Height: 6'2" Weight: 170 Related Info Lefty Gomez's career stats and highlights Lefty Gomez's biography in Spanish. As a pitcher for the New York Yankees in the 1930s, Baseball Hall of Famer Vernon "Lefty" Gómez (#11) was a major force in helping the Yankees win five American League Pennants and five World Series Championships. The Yankees purchased Lefty Gomez from his hometown San Francisco Seals in 1929 for $35,000. Two years later the slender 6'2" Gomez with his high leg kick and smoking fastball won 21 games for the Yankees with the support of teammates like co-members of the Hall of Fame Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio. After a winning game the outspoken Gomez was quoted saying: "I want to thank all my teammates who scored so many runs and Joe DiMaggio, who ran down so many of my mistakes." Along with right-hander Red Ruffing this lefty-righty combination was the core of the pitching staff in the 1930's.

Lefty Gomez Players Linked Red Ruffing and gomez combined for one of the longestrunning lefty/righty pitching combinations in baseball history http://www.thebaseballpage.com/past/pp/gomezlefty/
Extractions: Years before Joe DiMaggio was signed by the Yankees out of San Francisco, the Bay Area produced Vernon Louis Gomez, a talented and colorful left-handed hurler. "Lefty" starred for the Yankees during the 1930s and early 1940s, teaming with Red Ruffing to form one of the best pitching duos in baseball history. Gomez posted a 6-0 record in the Fall Classic, winning five rings with the Yankees. Originally a hard thrower, Gomez suffered arm injuries in 1933, 1936 and 1939, eventually re-tooling himself as a finesse pitcher. He enjoyed a 165-89 record for the Yankees for the decade of the 1930s, finishing in the top ten in MVP voting three times.
Red Ruffing | The BASEBALL Page Grimes, Bump Hadley Players Linked Ruffing and lefty gomez combined as one ofthe longest running righty/lefty pitching combinations in baseball history. http://www.thebaseballpage.com/past/pp/ruffingred/default.htm
Extractions: Red Ruffing was Joe McCarthy's opening act in the Fall Classic. On six occasions, in 1932, 1936, 1938, 1939, 1941 and 1942, Ruffing started Game One of the World Series for McCarthy, with the Yankee right-hander winning the game five times. Ruffing won 273 games, helping the Yankees to seven World Series with his off-speed stuff. He won 20 games four straight years, from 1936-1939, when the Yanks became the first team to win four straight titles. Ruffing teamed with Lefty Gomez to form one of the longest-running and most successful righty/lefty duos in baseball history. His personality was the opposite of Gomez's - he was generally quiet, efficient, and unflappable on the mound. Ruffing was one of the best hitting pitchers in baseball history, batting .269 with 36 homers for his career. He was 58-for-228 (.254) as a pinch-hitter. In 1967 he earned entry to Cooperstown, his pal Gomez joining him five years later.
