Extractions: Vernon Louis Gomez was born in the small North Bay town of Rodeo, California on November 26, 1908, and enlivened the planet for over eighty years. He was a bit of a screwball, hence his "El Goofy" nickname, but his oddball demeanor and self-deprecating wit did not overshadow his ability as a pitcher. For thirteen years he provided his Yankee teammates with a lot of laughs and, more importantly, with topflight pitching, appearing in five World Series and winning six games without a loss for the Bronx Bombers. Lefty was certainly not goofy when the chips were down. But, to the consternation of Yankee manager Joe McCarthy, Gomez did once stop a World Series game to watch a plane flying overhead. It was the second game of the 1936 World Series, and when Lefty came to the bench at the end of the inning, McCarthy spewed forth, "Whaddaya tryin' to do out there, ya nut! Are ya tryin' to lose the game for us?" To which the unflappable Gomez replied, "Listen, Joe, I've never seen a pitcher lose a game by not throwing the ball."

Extractions: Quotes - G "There are three things in my life which I really love. God, my family and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit." - Al Gallagher, SF Giants "When I'm at bat, I'm in scoring position." - Oscar Gamble, when asked about hitting with runners in scoring position "Never trust a baserunner who's limping. Comes a base hit and you'll think he just got back from Lourdes." - Joe Garagiola, St. Louis Cardinals "Baseball gives you every chance to be great. Then it puts every pressure on you to prove that you haven't got what it takes. It never takes away that chance and it never eases up on the pressure." - Joe Garagiola "When I covered the Yankees in the '60s, they had players like Horace Clarke, Ross Moschitto, Jake Gibbs and Dooley Womack. It was like the first-team missed the bus." - Joe Garagiola, broadcaster On his own scouting report: "Very deceptive. Slower than he looks." - Joe Garagiola "I heard Billy Buckner tried to commit suicide over the winter. He stepped in front of his car, but it went through his legs." - Billy Gardner, KC Royals

Extractions: d. Feb. 17, 1989 Career Pitching Record At 6-foot-2, Gomez weighed only 173 pounds, but his long arms gave him the leverage to throw a very good fastball, and early in his major league career he developed an excellent slow curve that drove hitters crazy. He had a 2-5 record in a brief stint with the New York Yankees in 1930, but became a regular starter the following season and had a 21-9 record with a 2.67 ERA. Gomez went 24-7 in 1932 and won the second game of the World Series 7-2 as the Yankees swept the Cubs in four games. After leading the league with 163 strikeouts in 1933, Gomez won the first of two pitching triple crowns. He was tops in the AL in victories and winning percentage with a 26-5 record, in strikeouts with 158, and in ERA with a 2.33 mark. He also led the league with 6 shutouts, despite the fact that he started only 33 games because of an arm injury late in the season. The arm continued to bother him for the next two years, when he had a combined 25-22 record, but he won two games in the 1936 World Series. In 1937 he bounced back to win his second triple crown, leading in victories with a 21-11 record, in strikeouts with 194, and in ERA at 2.33, along with a league-leading 6 shutouts. Gomez won two more games against the New York Giants in the World Series, giving up just 3 runs in 18 innings.

Extractions: Lefty Gomez License Plate Lefty Gomez was the pitching ace on the New York Yankees staff in the 1930s. His lifetime record was 189 wins and 102 losses (1930-1943), and he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1972 . Aside from being a great pitcher, he was also a great prankster and his teammates called him "Goof." This is Lefty's license plate from 1956 . Vanity license plates were not too common in those days. When he was driving to Yankee Stadium from his home in Connecticut, a lot of drivers on the road probably tried to figure out what comedian was in the car in front of them. Little did many of them know it was the only man to win six games and lose none in World Series play the great Lefty Gomez.
