Career: 1950-67, Yankees
Fun fact: Yankees' all-time leader in wins, strikeouts and innings pitched

The ace of the Yankees' Golden Era dynasty, Ford still holds records for the most World Series wins, losses and starts, and he broke Babe Ruth's record for scoreless innings in the World Series; his mark of 33 2/3 consecutive blank frames still stands.

Ford's stats were hurt by manager Casey Stengel's tactic of slotting him against top foes.
